The district had about 4,600 students during the 2020 school year, according to its website.
The Davenport Community School District is looking for families who may need assistance getting online and has developed a program to help.
“DCSD Connect is a program that was developed to help provide adequate internet access for our families who need it,” Gary Sloat, the district’s director of learning information services, said. “It is modeled after many Connect2Compete offerings by internet providers affiliated with ‘Everyone On,’ a national non-profit program.”
The Davenport district also has enhanced wireless zones in parking lots on its properties so families can access the internet from their vehicles, the release states.
During the initial onset of COVID-19 in the spring, the Pleasant Valley Community School District went fully online, and had to address internet availability then, said Brian Strusz, superintendent of Pleasant Valley.
“We handed out just over 50 hotspots for families,” Strusz said.
The district was assessing its families’ internet needs for upcoming classes, he said=. Pleasant Valley still has the original hotspots available, and could get more.
North Scott Community School District estimated about 78 families needed internet when the coronavirus forced classes online in the spring, Joe Stutting, district superintendent, said. They were provided with internet access or hotspots.
