Instructional Technology


The Los Angeles Unified School District is working to ensure every student and employee has access to the internet connectivity needed for high-quality teaching and learning.

We are exploring device and connectivity needs to provide the right solution for every student, every educator, and every family. Please let us know how we can best support your child by completing the Parent Acknowledgement and Device/Connectivity Request Form.

Parents and guardians can now use a single form to request computing devices and/or connectivity services for all children enrolled in an LAUSD school.
