Wichita BOE votes to improve student internet access

The Wichita Board of Education has taken further action to improve internet access for students learning remotely.  

The board authorized the school district to enter into two-year service agreements with T-Mobile and Verizon, based on new enrollment for remote learning and helping students who are in need of internet service.  Students at the middle-and-high-school levels in the Wichita school district are learning remotely for the first nine weeks of the school year.

The agreement approved Monday night provides additional funding to help make sure every student in the district learning remotely has the access and resources they need to keep on track.
