In January, the Providence school district was one of 11 districts across the country to participate in the pilot launch of Sprint’s 1Million Project. The school district received 250 devices at that time.
The 2017-2018 school year marks the first year of the initiative, with more 180,000 students in 1,300 schools across 30 states.
Over the next five years, hundreds of thousands of high school students who lack internet access at home will join the 1Million Project. The goal is to connect one million students to help level the playing field and help eliminate the “Homework Gap.”
