When Michigan’s governor closed schools in response to coronavirus, and mandated learning from home, the Eastern Upper Peninsula Intermediate School District had a problem. One-third of their students live in homes with limited or no connectivity.


Schools are closed, but learning continues

  • Challenges 

    Nearly 50% of EUPISD students are socially or economically disadvantaged and many don’t have adequate connectivity at home. The district needed a way to enable all their students to continue their schoolwork when COVID-19 closed schools.

  • Results

    The district began with drive-up internet access locations in schools, community centers, and other locations. They are continuing to install routers to extend the edge of the school’s network and bring free Wi-Fi closer to the kids who need it.

  • Solution

    Mobile LTE routers equipped with AT&T SIMs and Meraki access points. The router connects to the AT&T network for data service.
