"ISDs reach out to students with distance learning" by: Jessica Shepard

  In the wake of local school districts’ campuses closing until further notice, teachers and districts are turning to online distance learning for their students.
   Bay City ISD has had over 1,600 families respond to the technology access survey in English and/or Spanish.  
   “Results reflect that we will have approximately 400 families that will need internet access and approximately 600 families that have no learning device. (Chromebook/iPad) in their home,” said BCISD Assistant Superintendent Lisa Moya.
   “BCISD has entered into an agreement with T-Mobile to purchase hotspots for families who lack internet connectivity. We are awaiting that shipment and are working on a hotspot/Chromebook distribution plan. More details and a timeline will be published later this week.”
