Texas district hopes to bridge homework gap with SpaceX satellite tech

Education Dive |

Ector County ISD will be the first school district to use SpaceX Starlink technology to provide high-speed home internet to students and teachers.

The district has identified families for the pilot based on data showing they live in more remote locations that have no options for home internet service. The pilot will provide the Wi-Fi router and other equipment necessary for access to internet services, which will be free to those families for the first year.
