9th through 11th-grade students that have not received a HotSpot or did not obtain parent permission during the last survey period will need to complete the survey again.
Hotspot devices will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
DCPS High School Students Have Access to Free Hotspots
Duval County Public Schools has launched the Free Hotspots for High School Students Program. This program provides free high-speed internet access to high school students who do not currently have reliable Internet access at home by providing hotspots to students who qualify.
A hotspot is a stand-alone device that uses a cellular data network to allow students to connect to the internet anywhere that a cellular network is available.
We know that many of our students’ families can’t provide internet access for everyone in their household. By providing free hotspots, we can eliminate connectivity challenges for some of our students so that they can keep up with their homework assignments, communicate with teachers, study online for college prep exams, download educational apps, and be better positioned for academic success.
Supplies are limited; devices are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. The equipment and service are free for students to use while in high school. With the hotspot, students will receive 10GB of free high-speed wireless data each month for up to four years while the child is a registered Duval County Public Schools student. Duval County Public Schools can not track or monitor students' activity while using the Wi-fi hotspot.
Parents must have OneView account to provide consent for their students to participate. Click here to create a OneView account: https://dcps.duvalschools.org/Page/15746
