Computer Equity Project

Wayzata Public Schools is proud to offer the "Computer Equity Project", which has been developed to help merge the gap between students who have access to technology at home with those that do not. Computers that are cycled out of Wayzata Public Schools are refurbished and offered to students who qualify for the devices. In order to qualify, students must first meet with a Wayzata High School social worker and an application form must be submitted. 
Important information: the Computer Equity Project is for Wayzata High School students who do not own or have access to a computer at home. This project is designed to increase student achievement and technology by expanding and enhancing access to technology. Students must keep the issued computer and understand that Wayzata Public Schools is not responsible for upkeep or maintenance. Recipients must provide their own transportation of the equipment to their home, access to software, technical support, and internet access.
Computers are refurbished by students under the supervision of Tyler Shepard, associate principal. If you have any questions, contact a social worker or Tyler Shepard at
