Free WiFi for San José Unified families

November 7, 2017

Did you know? San José Unified has been selected by Sprint to participate in the 1Million Project. The goal of this five-year program is to provide one million high school students who do not have adequate internet access at home with the resources they need to be successful in school. Many of the classes students take today — particularly AP classes — require use of the internet for research, or collaboration with classmates and teachers.

Beginning this school year, we have more than 240 mobile hotspot devices available for high school students and their families with limited, costly, or no internet access at home. The hotspot and data plan are provided by Sprint at no cost to the student or the district.

The data plan provides 3GB of LTE data a month (just ask your kids), and unlimited data at 2G speeds after that. Hotspots are connected to a CIPA-compliant content filter so that students only have access to content that is appropriate.

We’re excited to partner with Sprint to provide students with the opportunity to extend their education outside of the classroom. As the largest and most diverse school district in Silicon Valley, our goal is to deliver a world class education that leverages the best technology available.
