Good morning Brooklyn Brownstone Family and Friends,
We have some updated information regarding iPad distribution from the Department of Education. They are ordering 300,000 just elementary schools!
Message me privately for STUDENT ID #
The week of March 23, 2020 the first shipment of 25,000 iPads will make their way to homes across New York City, beginning with high-need students.
Around March 30, the DOE expects to receive a second shipment of 50,000 devices and we will prepare those devices for shipment within a week, and deliver them as soon as possible.
iPads will be distributed on a rolling basis until all needs are filled.
The DOE is contracting with FedEx to deliver iPads directly to students. Your iPad will be shipped to the address you entered on the request form. Multiple iPads will be delivered to homeless shelters and foster care centers.
If you have already filled out the request form, you will receive a text message or email making sure you have completed the Student Device Loan Agreement. Please complete the agreement when you request a device as your device cannot be shipped unless you have signed the agreement.
Please make sure someone is at the address to accept the delivery, as FedEx will not leave packages unattended. Also, FedEx carriers will adhere to social distancing rules.
I hope this helps! Again, please write a message if you need anything. I hope we have a great second day of Brooklyn Brownstone School Online!
