This global pandemic does not impact all students equally. As San Bruno schools move to distance learning for the remainder of the school year, it has become clear that some of our students are at a huge disadvantage. Many of our school families lack internet and devices they can use to connect with their teachers and to access online learning materials. Students in these circumstances are likely to quickly fall behind their classmates academically.
The San Bruno Education Foundation is proud to have partnered with the City of San Bruno, San Bruno Park School District, YouTube, San Bruno Community Foundation, San Bruno Lions, San Bruno Rotary and San Bruno Police Association to quickly provide equipment and internet service for these vulnerable students.

ONLINE LEARNING BEYOND COVID-19
While this partnership will help students for the remainder of the school year, the fact is that our world is moving online, and our classrooms are no different. When the COVID-19 crisis ends and students return to real-world classrooms, our families will need ongoing support for technology and internet access so no student gets left behind. Our teachers will also need new skill sets and technology platforms to unlock the full potential of 21st century education. That’s why we are asking our community to step up to help us fund long-term remote learning resources beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
