GDOE to distribute 8,000 computers to students and families as it expands online learning

1706

The Guam Department of Education is working to deploy roughly 8,000 computers to students and families from its inventory throughout the island.

With the continued delay of face-to-face classes due to the health situation in Guam and the continued stay-at-home order, the GDOE is working diligently to expand and improve its distance learning strategy.

The 8,000 computers will be deployed to students who would like to enroll in the online model of learning, but who may need access to equipment in order to do so. More information regarding this initiative will be announced at a later date.

“As our island deals with this unprecedented situation, our goal is to expand and improve our distance learning options so that our students can continue to learn safely at home,” GDOE Superintendent Jon Fernandez said.

“As we continue to implement safety measures at our schools to protect the safety of both our students and our employees, we will continue our work of supporting our families as best we can,” he added.
