Families: do your children have access to an internet-capable device that they can use for remote learning?

We need to HEAR FROM YOU about your device needs.

As NYC public schools transition to a remote learning model in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Apple and T-Mobile are working with us to make sure that every student who needs a device has access to one.

If your children do not have access to an internet-enabled tablet or laptop/personal computer, we urge you to fill out our online Remote Learning Device Request Form. Available in ten languages, the online form will allow you to request an internet-enabled iPad for an NYC public school student in your family.

Once you submit your form, the DOE will use the contact information you provide to follow up with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per student—families with multiple students who need devices should fill out one device request form for each student.

Please don’t delay—let us know your technology needs TODAY.

While smartphones are internet-capable devices, we do not recommend that our students rely upon them for remote learning. Please let us know if you need a tablet if your student does not already have one.
