An organization called PCs for People (pcsforpeople.org) is offering affordable home computers and wireless internet for students who meet income eligibility requirements. The computers and internet service are offered at a discounted price of $10 for families.
The instructions for signing up are included on the attached flyers. It is a multi-step process that those interested would need to complete in order to register to receive the discounted PCs.
For families who sign up and are approved as eligible to receive a computer or internet package, the technology pick-up day is Tuesday, May 12, Noon to 2p.m., at Elyria High School (West Ave. side.) The service is curbside so there's no need to leave your vehicle during pick up.
Please note: families must pre-register to reserve technology. A limited amount of computers and hotspots are available.
Financial aid is available through Elyria Schools for families who qualify. Please indicate need when registering to reserve technology.
Registrations are taken at www.pcsforpeople.com/ohio or by leaving a voicemail at 216-777-4441. (The computers are not purchased by, distributed through or serviced by Elyria Schools.)
