Access to technology and broadband internet is critical for the modern-day workplace and ensuring students are college and career ready.
Students in rural areas, students of color, and low-income students disproportionately have limited access to digital learning tools. While these challenges existed prior to COVID-19, the pandemic exposed the critical need to connect hundreds of thousands of students and their families to technology.
It's time to dismantle this barrier to learning. That’s why Supt. Hoffman invested $1.5 million to the Final Mile Project to bring reliable, high-speed internet access to rural Arizona students by extending existing broadband capacity at schools and libraries to students’ homes. She also worked with the Phoenix Public Library to double the number of laptops and hotspots available.
In her second term, Supt. Hoffman will continue to advance inclusive digital solutions to ensure that every student in Arizona has access to learning anytime, everywhere.
