Crane School District: Redefine Learning with ConnectED

Tucked into the southwest corner of Arizona’s desert, Crane School District is one of two K-8 districts in Yuma. It has a very low socioeconomic population, with 100 percent of its students eligible for free or reduced lunch. Among the poorest districts in the country, Crane leaders were committed to locating additional funds to help support their dream of providing essential technological learning resources for their students. Thanks to the Apple ConnectED program, a President Barack Obama initiative to provide 99 percent of America’s students access to educational devices that are connected to the internet through high-speed broadband and high-speed wireless within five years, their dream became a reality.
