WiFi on Wheels
The team at HawaiiKidsCAN launched WiFi on Wheels, a program that ensured that students in Hawaii’s rural communities had access to broadband internet. Fifteen vans, outfitted with a router, cables and rooftop antenna allowed students to access their digital learning. The team also championed direct support to families and secured a second win when Governor Ige announced that the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program will provide eligible families with $50 a month for broadband services.
A device for every student
ConnCAN’s advocacy for all students to have electronic devices so they could effectively learn paid off when Governor Lamont agreed to spend over $43 million in federal funds to ensure every student would have a laptop and high-speed internet access. ConnCAN continues to work to make access to technology a student right, and has seen early progress with a statewide initiative to expand broadband access further, leveraging recent federal funding.
