CAMDEN, NJ — The Camden school district will begin distributing more than 3,000 Chromebooks to K-8 students in Camden who are in need while they learn from home.
High School students received laptops last week, and the district released details on the K-8 schedule Monday.
“We knew prior to the [COVID-19] pandemic that the digital divide existed,” Superintendent Katrina McCombs told TAPinto Camden. “It has made the need to solve distance learning that much more necessary. Watching district and community agencies working together and partnering to get families what they need has been refreshing.”
Parents for Great Camden Schools also announced it is helping families access free internet, which is now accessible until June 30.
The Camden City School District (CCSD) also announced that the Office of Early Childhood will provide materials for Pre-K students this week.
Anyone making pick-ups needs to bring their student ID, as well as a face mask.
The schedule for the distribution, which begins Tuesday at 9 a.m. with 6th to 8th grade students, is available below:
