To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, Savvas Learning Company, a K-12 next-generation learning solutions leader, has partnered with EveryoneOn.org to honor teachers by helping close the digital divide for students from low-income families.
As part of its #SavvasThanks campaign for Teacher Appreciation Week 2021, Savvas is making a donation to EveryoneOn.org that will provide free high-speed Internet service to 100 families with school-aged students who are in need of reliable WiFi in their homes for digital learning. EveryoneOn.org is a nonprofit that works to connect low-income families to affordable Internet service, computers, and other digital resources.
"Over the past year, as students' homes became their classrooms, we have developed a deeper gratitude for everything teachers do. We've also seen during this time how a lack of reliable Internet access at home can serve as a barrier to learning, placing students in vulnerable communities at risk of falling behind their peers," said Bethlam Forsa, CEO of Savvas Learning Company. "We can't think of a more meaningful way to honor teachers for all their hard work than by doing something that really matters to them: helping advance digital equity."
