By Ellen Perez on April 3, 2020
FRIDAY, MAYOR LONDON BREED ANNOUNCED THAT HEY WOULD BE INSTALLING HOTSPOTS AROUND SAN FRANCISCO TO ASSIST WITH DISTANCED LEARNING.
While the shelter in place continues, teachers have been relying heavy on online teaching. It has been their main tool to assign projects and comminicating with their students . Unfortunately, not all students who have had to adapt to these conditions have access to the Internet.
Friday, Mayor London Bree announced that during the week of April 13th, 25 Super Hot Spots will be installed in areas of highest need. This will include Public Housing Sites, Community Centers and neighborhoods where students might not have access to the internet. These will be left installed until the end of the school year.
Each SuperSpot should provide internet access for about 100 users and powered by SPRINT.
More infö on how to be a part of this program coming soon.
With schools moving to distance learning, it's critical that our students have access to the internet so they can continue their education.
Today we're announcing that we'll deploy 25 WiFi Superspots & additional hotspots to connect thousands of students. https://t.co/F3ThLnqiU0
