We are again excited to announce Birmingham City Schools' inclusion in the Sprint One Million project that will provide free hotspots and internet service to our incoming 9th and 10th graders next school year. As a component of the implementation, we are required to conduct a student survey among potential student participants. This survey will help us determine how many students currently have access to the internet at home. This, in turn, will inform our overall request for devices from Sprint.
We will need all of our 8th Grade Students complete this Survey by Friday, May 26, 2017 so that the Birmingham City Schools District will have an adequate time to compile and analyze survey data, and submit our subsequent device request. This program represents a tremendous opportunity for us to begin to close the digital divide and support increase in student achievement.
