Thanks to a generous $25,000 grant from the CarMax Foundation, we are bridging the technology gap faced by students who lack home Internet access. Support has enabled the launch of a pilot program to provide qualified students with a portable Wi-Fi hotspot through Kajeet. Students are able to connect to the web away from school to complete homework and projects so that they don’t fall behind their peers. The program also gives teachers an opportunity to enhance their lessons and not hold back on assignments because some students may not have Internet access at home.
