  • Solving Connectivity Challenges in San Diego County

    Helping Our Most Vulnerable Students:

    In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Classroom of the Future Foundation (CFF) conducted a needs assessment and identified digital equity as a top issue facing LMI families with K-12 students. CFF estimates that there are approximately 100,000 students in San Diego County (1/5 of our public school student population) that lack access to the internet at home or are under-connected.

    Our most vulnerable student populations are at the greatest risk: Those who are in foster care, experiencing homelessness, and/or in need of special education services.
