Mobile hotspots, laptops available to EBR students

 The East Baton Rouge Parish School System  has launched an online resource for families to sign up for mobile hotspots and devices to accommodate students for its all-virtual model.

As of now, students will learn virtually starting Aug. 10  through Labor Day. Families in need of internet connectivity or devices should fill out a TechReady form by clicking here.

Officials say schools will continue to hold device distributions to equip each child with the tools they need. Families are encouraged to reach out to their child’s school for assistance or by clicking here for additional resources. The EBRPSS I.T. department will launch a new helpdesk to help families, students, and staff on Aug. 3. The new helpdesk will be available by clicking here.
