Technology Resources for Families

Technology Resources for Families

San Francisco Unified School District’s distance learning approach calls for students to engage in learning and make academic progress when they are not physically present in schools. This is accomplished using a variety of digital and print resources, and differentiated modes of interaction with teachers (and peers, when possible). SFUSD’s approach to distance learning aims to meet the personalized learning needs of our students. 

While schools are temporarily closed, San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) will loan Chromebooks to SFUSD students in grades 3-12 who do not have access to a computer during the day at home to support distance learning to the greatest extent possible. All devices will be on loan to families and will need to be returned to SFUSD when the district reopens. There is a limit of one device per student. 

What’s happening the week of April 6: Chromebook pickups will take place April 6 - April 8 from 10am until 3pm at centralized locations. Please complete SFUSD’s Digital Distance Device Request Form (bit.ly/sfusd-device) before coming to pick up a Chromebook. Go to the Need a device? page to learn more about dates, times, and locations.

SFUSD will provide updates on this website for how families can receive a Chromebook. Deployments will continue over the next two weeks.
