LAUSD Will Pay For High Speed Internet In Every Student Household, For A Year | LAist

LAUSD officials have also committed to purchase another 100,000 laptops and tablets over the next year — including 60,000 they intend to distribute by this summer — so that the district will have enough devices to ensure every student who needs one, has one at home. The district estimates one in five LAUSD students lacks internet at home or has substandard service. Early in the pandemic, the district relied on mobile wireless hotspots for these students. Now, any LAUSD family — regardless of income — can sign up through the district to receive fixed, in-home, broadband internet. District officials have contracted with Spectrum and AT&T to provide the service through June 2023.
