The Dayton Public School District is providing Chromebooks and WiFi for families without, so that students may complete assignments as changes to improve online learning are made.
Teachers will be giving virtual instruction to students beginning April 13.
One Chromebook will be loaned per family of five, and 32 buses equipped with WiFi will be parked in various Dayton neighborhoods so that students may connect to WiFi inside their homes Monday through Friday.
More information on the hours and locations the buses will be stationed will be shared soon.
High school seniors will be loaned a WiFi hotspot so they can complete their work from home at any time, and will receive the hotspot and Chromebook later this week or early next week.
Teachers will touch base with each student individually on a weekly basis to ensure they are understanding their lessons.
Parents should confirm that their email and phone number are up-to-date in Home Access Center so teachers can easily communicate with families.
The Home Access Center can be accessed through the DPS app or at DaytonPublic.com.
There are no online lessons for students this week.
Chromebooks should be returned when in-person learning resumes, and if it does not, they should be returned in June.
Teachers received training last week, and will continue training this week to learn new tools and best practices for effective remote instruction.
