The Huntington Beach Union High School District previously participated in the 1 Million Project to provide free hotspots to students. Unfortunately, this program has been discontinued. The District is currently applying for the Emergency Connectivity Fund grant to replace the 1 Million Project.
If you have a hotspot from the 1 Million Project, we currently do not have a timeline on when service will be disabled.
What is available now?
The Federal Government has another program called the Emergency Broadband Program. You can see more information here. Important!!! If you qualify and are receiving internet services from the Emergency Broadband Program, you will not be eligible to receive a free hotspot from the Emergency Connectivity Fund. In other words, you cannot participate in both programs at the same time.
You can also wait for the District to be approved for the Emergency Connectivity Fund hotspot program. At this time we do not know if and when we will be approved. At this time, we do not have a waiting list to be on this program. When more information is available, this will be sent out via ParentSquare or posted on our website.
