Internet Away from School

According to the most recent data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), 14% of children, nationwide, ages 3-18 don't have internet access at home.

Reasons for not having home internet vary. Most families surveyed by NCES reported that they simply don’t need it. However, 34% reported not having internet because they were unable to afford it, 4% because they did not have a home computer, and 4% because an internet connection was not available in their area.

  • Shedeck Elementary

  • YPS Service Center Bldg. (formerly the 6th Grade Academy)

Cellular Wireless Access Points via Kajeet

We are deploying cellular wireless access points that can connect up to 65 devices at a time to several residential areas across our community. Communications will be sent out to those areas with how to connect and the location of these access points.

Mobile Hotspots

In some situations a mobile hotspot may be issued to students to take home. Contact your school principal, to discuss this option if needed. All low-cost options should be exhausted before inquiring about a hotspot. When a hotspot has been approved for issuance a hotspot consent form must be completed by the parent/guardian. Hotspots are reserved for those that live in our rural areas and those with no internet service and access to services in their area.
