The CDC works with nearly 4,000 children in the Dallas, Texas school district, including 18 schools, and partners with afterschool programs that focus on math, art and computer applications, standardized test prep and book clubs. The students will be able to use the devices to download assignments, applications and other programs to be used for studying.
Several iPods were recently donated to students at Cockrell Hill Elementary in Desoto, Texas, to assist students.
“We are so grateful to the Greater Dallas CDC and DynCorp International for donating to our school, and specifically our students,” said Cockrell Hill principal Arista Owens-McGowan. “We want our students to use the latest technology and be able to bring their devices to school to enhance their learning.”
