A New School Year For Bridging The Digital Divide

HCS EdConnect

HCS EdConnect bridges the digital divide in online learning here in Chattanooga and Hamilton County.

The first-of-its-kind initiative between Hamilton County Schools and EPB - along with community partners such as The Enterprise Center and Tech Goes Home - brings no-cost, high-speed internet to any household with a child eligible for free or reduced-cost school lunch.

HCS EdConnect began last school year, during the pandemic - and this school year, it continues to enroll new students.

Rachel Emond is with Hamilton County Schools - and Scottie Summerlin is with EPB.
