|Although Sarasota County Schools provide computers and internet access during the school day, access to technology outside of the classroom is fundamental to student success in the classroom and careers. In an effort to help Sarasota County public school students reach their full potential, the Education Foundation of Sarasota County's Home Computer Program provides refurbished computers to qualified applicants. The criteria to qualify include being eligible for free or reduced price meals, having at-home internet access and e-mail address, and completion of a basic digital literacy training program. Students and families who do not have at-home internet access are encouraged to join the Comcast Internet Essentials Program before applying. Internet Essentials provides low-cost broadband internet service at home for $10 per month.
|To date, the Home Computer Program has impacted over 24,000 students and their families. There is no other agency in the county with the capability of meeting the need on this scale.
