SARASOTA COUNTY – Sarasota County is set to expand its internet coverage to reach at least 18,000 students enrolled in remote learning using federal coronavirus relief funds. 

Through funding received from the CARES Act, county officials will distribute $343,000 of its allotted funds to Comcast – a Philadelphia-based internet service provider – with the goal to extend internet service to students who may not otherwise have access for the next six months. 

To qualify, students must be enrolled in at least one need-based program, including the national school lunch or housing assistance program. Acknowledging that Comcast only covers a portion of Sarasota County, officials will also approach Frontier for additional services. 

This month, the Sarasota County branch of the NAACP and the Coalition of Business Associations proposed to earmark money for the 34234 zip code, which includes Newtown.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — There’s good news for Berkeley County students because technology — devices as well as hundreds of Wi-Fi hotspots and other internet connectivity options — will be available to them when the new school year begins Sept. 8.

Superintendent of Schools Patrick K. Murphy credited the district’s technology department for having worked since early summer to ensure students would have needed devices.

“Because of their planning, purchasing and deployment, Berkeley County Schools is ready to launch both computer and internet devices for staff and students for the Return to Learn school year,” Murphy said in an email.

“All of our students will have a device for use in either the brick or click pathway,” he said.

The district’s back-to-school plan includes two options — in person (brick) and remote (click) — for instruction, five days per week.

Students who will be attending in person will return to school

“It is estimated that one-quarter of our Cook County residents lack high-speed internet, and those rates are much higher for people of color,” Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said during an announcement of the partnership. “We cannot allow a quarter of Cook County to fall further behind as we recover, digitally, during the next phase of this crisis.”

Under the agreement, the housing authority will purchase 10 months of Comcast’s Internet Essentials service on behalf of eligible residents who enroll by Dec. 31. The program is funded through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and

Lee County teachers return to classrooms; how they’ll prepare for students

Destiny Viator


SOUTH FORT MYERS

Lee County teachers return to their classrooms Tuesday for a school year unlike any other.

They haven’t walked the halls since March, and when teachers step back into their schools, they’re going to begin preparing for a very unique situation.

The principal of South Fort Myers High School, Ed Matthews, said over that over the next couple of weeks, teachers will have to get acclimated to a new normal, which includes placing classes of core subjects next to each other to limit foot traffic, removing excess furniture from classrooms to promote social distancing, and placing a stronger emphasis on technology.

We’re seeing more and more the value of doing virtual,” Matthews said. “What’s good about it, what are things we can improve on. Just being able to use technology in general. I think some of us, just off of old practices, maybe we just haven’t

Destiny Viator

MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has committed CARES Act funding to deliver free internet access to eligible K-12 students in their homes this fall, according to the Mobile County Public School System.

School officials say families of eligible students will receive a letter after Aug. 24 which will include a prepaid voucher number and a list of service providers to contact to set up free high-speed internet service through Dec. 30, 2020.
