Technology & Connectivity

Multiple surveys were conducted to determine access to devices and high speed internet. Administrators and teachers confirmed their knowledge of a student’s access to devices and high speed internet.

The district is in the process of distributing 1:1 devices to students; our records will show which students have picked up their devices.

The district is utilizing various options to collect information from the families who currently do not have internet access at home (i.e. families can fill out help desk form, email to the computer department or inform the building administrator).

By the start of the 20-21 school year, the district will have distributed 1:1 devices to all students, and will have provided either a T-Mobile hotspot or login to Optimum WiFi to any students without current access to high speed internet, to be sure all students are participating in learning on an equal basis.

As new students register with the district, they will be issued a 1:1 device. If it is determined they will not have access to high speed internet, they will be issued a T-Mobile hotspot or login to Optimum WiFi, whichever is more appropriate to their situation.
