AACCES Connect:  Bridging the Digital Divide

CONGRATULATIONS to those who have received a laptop and/or wifi booster thus far!


We are still going through applications that were submitted by the deadline, so if you haven't heard from us yet, you will!


There is concern in our local communities that many students do not have the technology needed for online learning during this pandemic.   AACCES would like to help students succeed in this new normal of hybrid learning.  Please fill out our application/questionnaire for a chance to receive a chrome book for school and personal use.




In our on-going efforts to be extra helpful in the community during this pandemic, AACCES has donated to the Covid-19 Emergency Fund - CBC CARES Act. 

As of June 30, 2020, CBC had awarded emergency grants to 1,168 Students.  According to the CARES Act, the grants are intended to be used for:  childcare, course materials, food/groceries, housing/rent, medical/healthcare, technology, tuition and fees, and/or utilities.

The application process is now closed until August.  For more information on the CBC CARES Act, please visit

AACCES is thankful to our community sponsors for making it possible to participate in helping CBC students during these trying times.
