Free Wireless Devices: 1 Million Project Foundation
Subject: Shelby County Public Schools will provide free wireless devices and service to eligible students
Again, this year, our school district is participating in the 1Million Project Foundation, a national effort to help high school students, achieve their full potential by providing them with a free mobile device with high-speed Internet access. Last year, only eligible high school students could participate. This year, the 1Million Project Foundation has opened that up to all grades, K-12.
Participating in this program will help ensure that Shelby County students have the 24/7 Internet access they need to be successful in today’s school environment with SCPS@Home and SCPS@School. It can also help students gain the digital skills needed for today’s jobs.
This is a completely free program for both our school district and for our students to participate in.
