I'm curious if any of the leaders here have found a way to use this crisis to direct more funding to tackling the student and community needs that have been laid bare?

Living in a rural area ….yes, we don’t have broadband in many of our homes. :-(
MR. A
02:01:26
Great Point! Access to broadband is huge and it's been great to see an effort made to close the gap. Covid exposes that it is possible to close it.
mattwoods
02:01:30
PREACH! The area I grew up in still can’t get broadband :(
Kelly Hoce
02:01:39
Hey Matt!

Even with hotspots, the speed is often limited and you have lots of buffering happening….speaking from rural Nebraska
Maria Haas - iForward (Grantsburg)
02:03:07
Yes we have to take care of our teachers! :) Thank you!
harrietgould
02:03:11
Margaret Wheatley talks about us needing to be warriors!! Like that!
MJCrosby
02:03:21
I have dozens of students at my school (NNHS) that have no access to broadband - we have had to send out flash drives with worksheets attached so they could get something :(
harrietgould
02:05:15
Really appreciate the opportunity for free meals for ALL students at our school.
Kim Moore
02:06:38
How are you building trust with underserved communities to meet the needs of their students?
Maria Haas - iForward (Grantsburg)
02:07:39
Are there any safety concerns with what students can access when hotspots are dispensed or are there ways to ensure their safety? I want to advocate for the use of hotspots in our district but that seems to be an obstacle.
Alicia A. Broadwater

Thank you, Dr. Spence, for addressing this
