We are proud to announce that we have been awarded 338 laptops, 162 LEGO Education SPIKE Prime sets for grades 6-8 and a stipend for Internet connectivity by @CDWCorp, @Intel, @LEGOFoundation and @FirstBook to provide digital equity for children in need! We are one of 45 schools in the nation to receive this award. We will be able to provide laptops to all students in grades K-8 following receipt of these laptops in October. Yay!

ADDING 6th GRADE: 6th - 8th grade parents: Please fill out the following survey https://bit.ly/3fAhrlK regarding your technology needs (internet access and/or laptop) for your child while distance learning. Following completion of the survey, please sign up for a time next week to receive a district assigned laptop when you (or any adult responsible to sign for a computer) and your child can attend a basic technology training at the following website https://bit.ly/33q4vMB . The link to sign up will also be available on the district website at www.uniongapschool.org. If your student already has a computer available, you will not be provided a district laptop at this time, as we want to make sure that all students have access to a computer for distance learning. If you had used a personal computer in Spring and are now signing up for a district laptop, you will be called by the office to verify your technology needs. The nation is short on available laptops, so we want to make sure that all students without the needed technology get assistance first versus providing computers to all students at this time. We will soon be providing basic training for all families. If you sign up for the basic training above, but will be using your own laptop, please bring it with you to the training. Otherwise, a district laptop will be assigned at the training. Devices and training will be coming soon for other grades as soon as we receive more devices from our vendors

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SECURE NEW INTERNET SERVICES! The Union Gap School District is part of an effort in trying to increase broadband access in our region. One of our first tasks is to map access to show need. I am asking Union Gap families to access this site from your home computer/device and take the 1 minute survey. It is a speed test that will log your upload and download speed. No identifying data will be published. It will populate a map with dots. Everyone is encouraged to take this survey, so please spread the word! Especially those at limited speeds. If you are not able to access the internet at all, you can report this by taking the survey from a mobile device, or a public connection such as one of our school parking lot drive-in hotspots. Here is the link: https://www.commerce.wa.gov/building-infrastructure/washington-statewide-broadband-act/speedtestsurvey/ Let's get as many dots as possible! There will be significant opportunities to secure funding, but we need to be ready with our needs assessment. Thank you for helping with this important effort. Lisa Gredvig Superintendent
