Hotspot Distribution

Hotspot PicUPDATE! Hotspot service has been extended to Dec 31st, 2022. Families do not need to take any action to receive this extended service and can keep their existing hotspot

As part of the “Connect Delaware” program, the Indian River School District has been distributing wi-fi hotspots to low-income families that would not traditionally have access to reliable internet service.

As of April 28th, 2021, approximately 1000 hotspots have been distributed to families in need. If you qualify for a hotspot and have not received one, contact your home school to see if supplies still are available. Families that qualify for the following programs are eligible to receive a hotspot while supplies last:

  • Free/Reduced Lunch (National School Lunch Program/Head Start)

  • Medicaid

  • Public Housing

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance (SNAP)

  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

  •  Women, Infants, and Children program (WIC)

Program Details:

  • This program is available while supplies last. Limit one per household.

  • The device is portable and may be used outside the home. This device’s performance is entirely dependent on the cellular signal available in its use area. The Indian River School District has no control over cellular signal.

  • This program will cover the cost of equipment and service through December 31, 2022. Families will not need to pay for participation and will not need to cancel the service at the end of the term. Service will end automatically on 12/31/22. Families will never be charged or opted-in to continued service.

  • The Indian River School District will make a reasonable effort to filter inappropriate content to maintain CIPA compliance. The District does not actively monitor these filters and may not use all features present in the associated software package. You are solely responsible for any inappropriate, illegal, harmful or irresponsible use. The school code of conduct will be in force anytime the devices are being used.

Please contact your home school if you are eligible and in need of a wi-fi hotspot.
