“School2Home is based on the simple recognition that around 30 to 40 percent of low-income California households do not have high-speed Internet and that this digital divide is widening the academic achievement divide. For that reason, School2Home has set out to get students connected to the Internet at home through affordable broadband programs and low-cost computers; provide parents the digital literacy skills they need to engage with teachers, schools and their children’s learning; and train teachers to use the increasing abundance of hardware and software to the benefit of their students’ education.—Delaine Eastin, former California Superintendent of Public Instruction

“What does School2Home represent? It represents a transformative philosophy that school is not an event that happens from 7 am to 3 pm every day. It’s something that our kids go through that we have this collaborative with parents and the community—that we’re going to raise citizens who are not only academically prepared, but are able to participate in our social democracy. It’s reestablishing education as a public good.” —Micah Studer, Technology Administrator, Winters Joint Unified School District

“The biggest asset that the School2Home program has brought to our community is the heightened level of parent participation. Today, the Central Middle School community enjoys a free flow of parental involvement in their student's education that I have never seen in 20 years of public education experience. This is exciting!” —Pablo Sanchez, Principal, Central Middle School, Riverside Unified School District

“Technology and media literacy are essential 21st-century skills. The School2Home program contributes to closing the achievement gap by providing laptops, Internet access, and training to students and families who might not have it otherwise.” —Becky Alber, History Coach, Stevenson Middle School, Los Angeles Unified School District

“School2Home is a cut above the rest. It is putting our students well into the 21st Century. What this program does is give our students the tools enabling them to compete in our highly technical and advanced workplace. School2Home also integrates all stakeholders, meaning teachers, parents, students, and business organizations, forming a vast technical networking community. Everything learned in this program is a plus to our school and to our community. —Mr. William Martin, 6th Grade Math and Science Teacher, Stevenson Middle School, Los Angeles Unified School District
