The funding will help around 1,000 pre-K, elementary school, high school, and special education students throughout the 2020-21 school year. It will, specifically, provide aid to students that come from  low-income households in Philadelphia. In addition to covering tuition, it will provide access to home and school technology with laptops, tablets, and WiFi availability.
