Digital Dreamers is a comprehensive technology program of the DeKalb County School District. This program will reach every student and teacher in the district, and continue to build on the district’s vision of increasing students’ technological footprint and preparing them to be globally competitive citizens –both now and in the future.

The Digital Dreamers Program Initiatives:

  • 1:1 Device Rollout: Chromebooklaptops will be distributed to each middle and high school student in phases over the next two years.
  • Teacher Refresh: Every teacher of record in the district will receive a laptop.
  • An Elementary Computer Refresh: The removal of 9,700 outdated machines from elementary schools and the installation of more than 25,000 new machines –increasing the digital footprint of our students
  • Digital Dreamers 1 Million Project: Made possible by the Sprint Foundation, 25,000 mobile hotspot devices will be distributed to eligible and qualified high school students. These devices will provide each household up to 3GB per month of free internet connectivity free of charge.

The Digital Dreamers program illustrates the district’s persistent efforts to bridge the digital divide for both our students and teachers.
