On July 16, 2020, the LMUSD Board of Education took action to require distance learning for the start of the 20-21 school year.
As a parent of an LMUSD student, I understand the stress that comes with distance learning. For many families, lack of technology and internet access adds another level of stress. Without internet access, students will fall behind in their education. While LMUSD is doing a good job supporting our children, we must do our part to help. As a community, we can work together to provide free WiFi to families throughout our area.
Imagine, free WiFi at our public parks? Free WiFi at coffee shops, laundromats, gyms, or restaurants? The bottom line? – We need to Reach our children in order to Teach them.
This is why I am introducing the Reach 2 Teach initiative, an effort to bring our community together to offer FREE community hotspots for kids.
I pledge to work with local businesses, our city, and the school district to get free WiFi, safe and secure, in our parks.
