WAYNESBORO, Pa (WAMS) – The Waynesboro Area School District has deployed a network of secure WiFi hotspots that students can access for their distance learning and hybrid courses.
WASD partnered with En-Net Services, from Fredrick Maryland who then informed them of Kajeet. Kajeet is a wireless provider that operates on the Sprint and Verizon mobile networks. Kajeet provides inexpensive mobile data plans and hotspots for students to access educational content.
These secure WiFi hotspots can only be accessed by district-issued student devices. Most of the hotspot locations request that users park in a parking space to access the network or (weather permitting) students can also use on-site pavilions and picnic tables.
These hotspots are available free of charge at the following locations (The hotspots at locations with a asterisk are currently under construction.)
