CEB AIMS TO Provide Opportunity For All!
For just $50, you can sponsor a student and purchase a Chromebook to provide opportunity to distance learning!
In partnership with NerdIT Now, Capital One, Spur Impact and YOU, the CEB aims to provide 225 Chromebooks to students at Kuumba Academy Charter School and Great Oaks Charter School - Wilmington, so they can receive the same continuity of learning opportunity as their more advantaged peers. The Chromebooks will allow for direct access to Google classroom and other apps that our K-10 educators are using for content and instruction.
We’ve all felt the impact of temporary school closures and the shift to online remote learning as part of the nation’s attempt to flatten the curve of COVID-19 exposure; but none more than our lower income and most vulnerable students and families. This crisis has exposed the depth of the digital divide in our nation. Now, our students are expected to learn (in part) online, and our parents are expected to support them.
Learn More About The Need
What if our students don’t have computers, or have to share with multiple siblings?
Students may not be able to access vital content or instruction. While Delaware leadership has worked over the years to expand high speed and broadband access to the majority of households, computer access is still an issue for many of the families and students in our community, including those who attend the partner schools at the Community Education Building. 7% of families in our districts are without computers, with a higher concentration in Wilmington where most of our families reside.
Now more than ever, we need your support with our goal of closing the opportunity gap for our students, by ensuring that they can continue to learn, grow and thrive through this unprecedented event.
Investing in our future
The CEB is on a mission to close the urban achievement gap and to prepare students to succeed in a global economy.
What could be more important than equipping the next generation of children with the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their potential?
Ours is a monumental mission. But achieving this mission is well worth the effort. With your help, we will transform urban public education, close the achievement gap, and prepare our students for citizenship in an increasingly global community.
Please consider a gift to help us transform urban public education.
