Nyssa School District program will keep kids logged in

NYSSA – Within the month, students in Nyssa will be able to continue their online studies at home even if parents can’t afford internet.

After a year of planning and coordinating, the Nyssa School District is close to rolling out citywide access to the district’s internet on students’ laptops. 

The access will be limited to handheld Chromebooks students receive from the district and all firewalls and protection used during school hours will be kept in place for home use. Students will not be able to access inappropriate sites or use social media.

“We are finishing up placing the district’s hot spots on telephone poles throughout the city,” said Ryan Hawkins, director of district operations. “We are a couple weeks away from completion.”

The process has not been without some problems and solutions from others . . .
