The state’s largest school system is expanding its free computer literacy workshops for families. Registration is now open for caretakers with a child currently enrolled in JP Schools.

JP Schools is now a 1:1 district, meaning every child has access to a device. With technology playing an ever-growing role in a student’s education, basic computer skills help families support their child in school.
