V Team, we have some good news - literally - that we’d like you to share.

Verizon and The New York Times recently launched a new program to support remote learning — offering free digital access to The New York Times to every high school in America. This includes access to The Times’s Learning Network.

We encourage you to share this offering on social media or directly with those you know in education and those with a high schooler at home. If you use IamVZ advocacy platform, you can share the news from there. For more information, visit VerizonSocialAdvocacy.com.

Let them know they need to follow these steps:

  1. Provide your school with the offer page: www.nytimes.com/highschoolaccess
  2. Ask your school representative — whether principal, administrator or teacher — to create a group account following the instructions on the offer page and invite students to log in.
  3. Students will be notified when their email address has been registered with the school account.

It’s as simple as that.

With schools shut down and the limits of our education system being tested, this access will benefit up to 14 million students; keeping them educated, informed and connected to the world.

Thank you for helping us spread the word.

Note: Students’ privacy is protected as student emails provided to The Times by school administrators will never be sold or shared beyond The Times or its service providers, and students will not see personalized advertising.

Free digital access through 7.6.20. Requires eligible high school administrators to activate a group digital subscription. Add’l Terms & Conditions apply. See nytimes.com/highschoolaccess for program details. Data rates apply.
