ECISD and SpaceX are partnering to provide free internet access to ECISD students.

This new service opportunity will start in early 2021. There will be 45 families who live in the Pleasant Farm area of south Ector County will be the first to try this project. Once ECISD picks the families, they will deliver the needed materials to the chosen homes.

“I think it will be positive because it gives the kids who don’t have the resources a chance,” junior Autumn Bakley said. 

ECISD will then proceed to give the opportunity of free internet services to 90 more families. 

“The kids will probably be happy but I don’t think they will all use it for just school,” junior Emani Calhoun said.
