Immigrant Parents and Student Learning

Learn their needs, offer adult courses, and help them acclimate to a new community.
By Audra Nissen Boyer

Many studies have documented the benefits of parent involvement in learning. Students whose parents are involved in their schooling tend to have better academic performance and fewer behavioral problems, and are more likely to graduate from high school.

Mac to School donates 15 MacBooks to Mankato Area Public Schools

December 17, 2014

From an article in the Mankato Times

MANKATO, MINN. – To support adult family literacy and student learning in the district, Mac to School has donated 15 certified MacBooks to Mankato Area Public Schools.

Mac to School’s generous donation – estimated at $10,000 – increases the ability for students to have technology to learn at home.

Mac to School, a leading provider of K-12 certified Apple technology, selected Mankato Area Public Schools for the donation through its national Give Mac program. The company evaluates candidates for donations based on their financial need and their intended purpose for the technology.  

“When we heard Mac to School had selected Mankato Area Public Schools, we were pleased because access to technology enables parents to help their children learn,” said Audra Nissen Boyer, the district’s director of community education. “It’s rare to receive such a generous vendor donation and we’re grateful because it helps families who otherwise could not afford a computer of their own.”

Families who receive the computers will support their learning in family literacy.  Specifically, they will learn how to utilize the district’s web-based book series—supported through a local partnership with Capstone Publishing.  Parents will ultimately meet a goal of being able to read books to their children.

“In a 21st-century learning environment, we know how important it is for students to have access to technology,” said Robert Baker, the co-founder and chief marketing officer of Mac to School. “It’s truly an honor to partner with Mankato Area Public Schools to put MacBooks in the hands of their new arrivals.”

“Literacy is so important. We could not be more thrilled with how the community has come together to support our learners. The devices donated by Mac to School will be put in the hands of students who need them most,” said MaryLou Whaley, the director of parent and community involvement for Hillsborough County Public Schools. “We are grateful to the team at Mac to School for their generous donation.”

Mac to School Donates iMac Lab

Santa Cruz, CA – May, 7 2014

Mac to School donated an iMac lab to Live Oak Elementary in Santa Cruz, California. This was the first donation through the Give Mac program.

Greg Stein, the Principal of Live Oak, was looking at creative ways to get more systems for his reading lab. Part of our Give Mac initiative is to be active in the communities that we serve.

We dropped off the iMacs in person, toured the school and got to spend some time talking with Greg about the challenges his students face with the lack of technology available.

We were happy to help make an impact in these students lives and look forward to more experiences like this in the future!
