A new project is underway to expand WiFi service for students in the Donna School District. The program comes after a study earlier this year showed that over half of the district’s students don’t have internet access at home.
The COVID-19 emergency stay home restrictions led district officials to contract the construction of WiFi towers throughout the district’s communities.
The Monitor reported Sunday there are currently five towers that have been built with three more under construction. Once complete, the project will have 12 towers beaming WiFi internet access within a mile radius from each tower so students in the district can learn at home online.
