Wifi Access

.

CCISD will be adding Wifi Hotspots outside of schools soon to assist those with limited access.  Please follow all social distancing when using these locations when published.  Access to School Wifi outside of the Campuses is limited at this time.  

Local and State Providers Message:

CCISD is partnering with Texas Wavenet to provide public WiFi access in the parking lots at Calhoun High School, JR Elementary back bus lane parking lot and Seadrift School parking lot. In order to prevent gathering indoors and complying with social distancing the intent is have parents/guardians drive up to the parking lot with the student to access the WiFi . Update: 3/27/2020 Community WiFi is setup and ready for use. Click to view locations and Hot Spot Zones in links below:

Internet Connectivity


Many internet providers are offering free or reduced services to assist families in need during this period of “at-home learning”.  Below are a collection of some of the offers currently available.  


A few notes to consider:

- Some service providers may not supply internet service to our area, so you will need to check with the provider to confirm eligibility.

 

- Calhoun County  ISD has no formal associations with any of the companies and providers listed below.  Listing a company does not imply an endorsement of their service.
