LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County School District is mapping out Wi-Fi hotspots for student use as the start of the school year draws nearer.
CCSD — in partnership with the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District — provides a map of the locations here:
A list of partners and their street addresses are available here:
The initiative is outlined in the CCSD Back to School Guide on internet access and WiFi buses. See more by downloading the guide:
In the spring semester, CCSD provided Wi-Fi to families that didn’t have an Internet connection by stationing school buses with Wi-Fi hotspots at various locations around the valley. That might continue when the fall semester begins.
The partnership with businesses and libraries makes Wi-Fi connections widely available for students to get on the Internet with school-provided Chromebooks.
Lack of Wi-Fi in some students’ homes was a barrier to distance learning as CCSD moved to online instruction when the COVID-19 pandemic began to affect the Las Vegas valley.
