Alta Vista High School & T-Mobil EmpowerEd Team up to close the Digital Divide
Alta Vista becomes the first Charter High School in Arizona to partner with T-Mobile.
On December 14th, Alta Vista learned that it is a recipient of the T-Mobile EmpowerEd award. The school applied for this competitive award so that they could narrow the learning gap created by the “digital divide”: the gap between students who have technology access at home and those who do not. The award will ensure that 150 AVHS students this year alone will have access to reliable chromebooks and wi-fi in their homes! Over 400 chromebooks are currently available for use at the school. In subsequent years, the number of chromebooks and hotspot devices provided by T-Mobile EmpowerEd can grow to include 150 more. Students will be able to use these resources for school, work, college applications and more.
