Affordable Connectivity Program
Hotspot Information for 2023/24
Hotspots that have been available the last 3 years were made possible with grant money. That funding is no longer available so we will not be providing Hotspots starting next school year. SWCS will continue to provide our outside Access Points for connection in the parking lot. Libraries and some local churches are connection points as well. We will post a 2023/2034 list of those resources in August.
All internet providers must offer the Affordable Connectivity Program which is based on income. You can contact any provider that covers your area and ask for an Affordable Connectivity Program application.
We realize some of our students live in an area where the internet is either not available or has such poor connectivity that subscribing isn’t worthwhile.
One possible solution might be a Mobile Hotspot from your cell phone provider. The Affordable Connectivity Program has discounts for these as well. Tiered pricing is offered by most carriers. It is recommended you discuss your needs directly with providers.
Below are some locally available internet providers. This is NOT a complete list as the area we serve is quite broad.
