Once you, your family, or your students have a Wi-Fi hotspot device through SJ Access, check out these exciting SJPL programs:
K-12 students living in San Jose and attending a public school are eligible.
The Unite Express 2 Category 13 Hotspot device comes with an unlimited high speed data plan available for the 2020-2021 school year. Up to 15 mobile-enabled devices (e.g., laptops, tablets, or smartphones) can access Wi-Fi through a single hotspot device. All devices that have been configured for schools will also have Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) filtering. Devices will include a setup guide that is translated in Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, and Tagalog.
Students will be able to access hotspot devices directly through their school sites. Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) is working with schools and districts to understand their community needs and will continue to do so throughout the year. SJPL is managing the delivery of hotspot devices to individual sites.
This service is being offered at NO COST to schools or students, and there will be no fees for damaged, lost, or stolen devices.
SJPL will NOT know which students are using the devices. Only schools will have that information.
