Help is on the way for families with kids staying home for school. Remote leaning is being utilized in districts around Illinois and that requires internet access.
The Moline-Coal Valley School District partnered with the City of Moline to provide internet services for up to 500 families who can’t afford it.
“We have a lot of residents in the neighborhood that are lower income,” said Pedro Valladares, Floreciente Association Co-Chair. “They don’t have the opportunity to have something basic as internet.”
Parents can sign up for the Internet Assistance Program once school starts.
