BRADFORD — Attorney General TJ Donovan announced today that he secured from Comcast a donation of 250 Chromebooks to a Vermont school district in need.
As Vermont school children have shifted to remote learning, some pupils in the Orange-East Supervisory Union (OESU) did not have reliable access to tablets or computers.
OESU consists of schools servicing Bradford, Newbury, Corinth, Groton, Ryegate, Thetford, Topsham, and Wells River.
Students who are slotted to receive these Chromebooks attend Blue Mountain Union School, Newbury Elementary School, River Bend Career and Technical Center, and Waits River Valley School.
“I want to thank Comcast for making this investment in our future,” Attorney General Donovan said. “This is a challenging time for students, teachers, and parents. I know these Chromebooks will make all the difference to those who receive them.”
The Chromebooks were delivered on Monday, May 4, 2020.
In addition, Comcast is waiving late fees and disconnects for Xfinity service through June 30.
