On behalf of Hoover City Schools, Brian Phillips, Chief Technology Officer of Hoover City Schools would like to request permission for Hoover students to use Wi-Fi available through local businesses. Hoover City Schools uses instructional technology as one way of enhancing the mission to prepare and inspire all students for lifelong success by teaching the skills, knowledge and behaviors students will need as responsible citizens in the global community.
Excellence in education requires that technology is seamlessly integrated throughout the education program. In an effort to increase access to those 21st century skills, HCS has made it a goal to offer students a 24/7 accessibility to their learning through this "Engaged Learning Initiative" (ELI). The individual use of technology is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for college and the workplace.
They want to list the businesses that provide students with a safe environment outside of their homes to continue their education. If you are willing to be a partner with Hoover City Schools, we will provide you with a sticker for your door so that our students know you are contributing to their access. We will also list your business as a location our students can go to and safely use their devices on the school website. If you are willing to partner with us, please fill out this form, and we will provide you with any information you need. Thank you for your consideration.
