Lockland schools are partnering with the village government and Cincinnati Bell to offer 15 free, public Wi-Fi hotspots spread throughout the district. The school district is paying for this program with grants from the state of Ohio, CARES Act funding and help from local nonprofit organizations, Longworth said.
Eight of the spots are in public areas; seven are set up in apartment complexes that house high numbers of Lockland students. They were all accessible on Wednesday night.
“We believe that it’s our responsibility to provide that because we are leaning heavily on those resources to meet the needs of our kids,” Superintendent Bob Longworth said Wednesday.
