About the Program

How well did federal pandemic funds improve digital access for historically underserved K–12 students and their families? PPIC researcher Joseph Hayes will present new findings on efforts to close California’s digital divide in education, with suggestions for building momentum now that federal emergency funds have ended.

This research and event are supported with funding from the Sobrato Family Foundation.
