Remote Learning

Request an iPad

Does Your Child Need a Device for Blended or Remote  Learning? 

Use the Remote Learning Device Request form to let your school know you need a device. 

  • The information you provide, including whether your family has WiFi, will be shared with your school so they can work with you to ensure your child has a device for blended or remote learning.
  • Schools are working with central DOE to help get the devices needed.

Who Can Request an iPad

Any child, from 3K to grade 12, who attends a NYC public school, DOE Pre-K or 3K program (NYCEEC/FCC) and who needs a device is eligible to receive a device for remote learning.

All requests will be shared with the student's school to determine if the school can fulfill the request. Requests that cannot be fulfilled by schools will be referred to the DOE for support. Families should work with their schools first to secure a device that meets their needs, and schools will be asked to identify outstanding device needs to the DOE central device team.
