*You Might Qualify for a Free Laptop

The Foundation for Edmonds School District is working with the district Tech dept to giveaway used laptops this school year. It's very important to meet the application deadline and to attach the necessary documentation to be considered. Here's what you need to do the following to apply:        

  • Complete an application (English) or (Spanish) or ask the office for a paper copy. 
  •  Attach income support -- either your Letter of Eligibility for Free or Reduced Lunch Benefits or Recent Paystubs that demonstrates that you meet the income guidelines. Without income support, the application is incomplete and disqualified. Every year 10-15% of applications are disqualified for this reason. Please ask for help if you need it so you get the documents turned in. 
  • Submit an Application complete with supporting documents by Monday, December 3, 2018; You can mail/deliver them to the Foundation offices at the District Office, or the school office will put them in the mail to them for you --- but if you bring it to the school office, bring it by Friday, November 30.
