• Princeton has partnered with local apartment complexes and mobile home parks to provide additional WiFi hot spots that can be borrowed from the office, rental centers, or community rooms.  Thanks to Dr. Kevin Jamison, Dr. Mari Phillips, and Superintendent Tom Burton for delivering over 40 WiFi hot spots on April 15, 2020.  More to be distributed in the communities soon!  Thank you to our community partners for helping us to stay connected!

     

    Princeton is deploying WiFi hot spots (Kajeet Smart Spots) in certain areas of the school district so that students who don’t have access to the internet at home can still be able to receive digital educational materials and lessons from their teachers.  We have two options in which students can access Wifi: (1) District School Campuses and (2) Parking lots of apartment complexes within the community.

     

    District School Campus Hot Spots (Monday - Friday)

    7:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.

    The district has expanded the bandwidth of the school’s internet network to extend beyond indoor access to outdoor parking lot access.  Parents or students can drive to the school, park in the parking lot, and students can download their lessons to their hard drive onto their computer.  We want to make sure that every student has access to the internet and technology.

    The Princeton Mobile Book Center will travel to specific neighborhoods in the district.  The mobile book center bus will park in the lot of the school. Students will not board the bus but will be able to access the WiFi bandwidth from the parking lot.  It will travel to communities in the attendance areas of Lincoln Heights, Sharonville, Springdale, and Stewart.
