Homework Central is pleased to announce that we have received a generous grant from the Oracle Giving Program to purchase new technology for use in our homework sites. Oracle and Homework Central are partnering to help bridge the digital divide for the elementary school students we serve. Several Chromebooks will be purchased for supervised student use at our sites. These devices are identical to new devices that students will use for testing at elementary schools in the San Mateo-Foster City School District. This technology will be deployed to help our students improve their computer skills while providing them with gateways to online educational programs for improvement in the areas of mathematics, reading comprehension and writing.
