(TNS) — Eligible metro Atlanta high school students from seven school districts who don’t have reliable broadband internet service at home can get assistance.
Sprint announced Tuesday that the communication services company is expanding a program to offer free devices and internet access to high schoolers who qualify for the program. The program is expanding from two districts to seven: Atlanta, Bibb, Clayton, DeKalb, Fulton, Henry and Rockdale school systems.
Previously, Sprint had helped more than 11,000 DeKalb and Atlanta students by providing them with internet access so they could do homework and fill out job and college applications at home.
Sprint said the expansion from two districts to seven will almost double the number of metro Atlanta student participants to nearly 20,000.
