Kajeet is excited to announce the launch of the Virginia Education Broadband Grant, in partnership with the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA).
In Virginia, it is estimated that more than 200,000 K-12 students lack broadband access at home. During the ongoing pandemic, education leaders continue to go above and beyond, many working alongside the Kajeet education team, to help tens of thousands of students gain access to the online learning resources needed to succeed in school and beyond. Even so, work remains to solve the digital divide for Virginia’s students.
Kajeet has partnered with VSBA to announce the first-ever Virginia Education Broadband Grant program. This funding opportunity will help school divisions continue the important work being done to ensure all students have digital learning access at school and at home. In total, Kajeet will award nearly $250,000 in broadband services to Virginia school divisions to solve the digital divide and help ensure that all students have access to learn, anytime, anywhere.
