The Covid-19 pandemic created an urgent need for laptops for each of our students. It was very obvious that the “remote side” of a hybrid learning environment would only work if everyone had a device to use to attend their virtual classes.
When school opened in the Fall of 2020, IEF learned that 35% of Incline Middle School students had to share a device with a family member. You can’t learn at home if it’s not “your turn” to use the computer or if you can’t bring one to school.
Incline Education Fund launched a “Tech Drive” to get students the tools they needed. Enlisting the support of the Incline Village REALTORS Good Neighbor Committee, the Tahoe Lending Group and the Incline Village Community, IEF was able to raise enough money to provide a laptop for every student.
Incline Middle School students can now not only learn remotely, but they also have the tools to prepare for the rigor of Incline High School.
