School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) is pleased to receive a generous donation of $10,000 from the Port Moody Foundation for the purchase of laptops and/or internet data plans for Port Moody students enrolled in grades 6-12 in support of the SD43 “Bring Your Own Device" initiative or remote learning opportunities. The donation was made possible through funds raised by the Tri-Cities Foundation's Stay-at-Home Gala held in May to target COVID-19 issues.
The “Bring Your Own Device" or BYOD initiative invites families to send a device to school each day to be used in learning activities. SD43 is committed to developing digital responsibility in our students and recognizes that the majority of students will require a reasonable level of competency in using digital technology in the future.
Thank you to the Port Moody Foundation for providing students with more access to technology and for your support of digital literacy in our classrooms!
