Ashdown Schools Receive Grant for Outdoor Wireless Equipment
Aruba Networks, which provides WiFi for Ashdown Public Schools, gifted almost $14,000 of outdoor wireless equipment to Ashdown High School and Ashdown Junior High to assist with providing outdoor wireless access for students.
The outdoor kits will allow students who do not have internet access at home to use the school Wi-Fi from the safety of their car in the parking lots surrounding each school. These outdoor wireless kits were provided to the district free of cost.
According to Casey Nichols, Ashdown Superintendent, “We are so fortunate to have received this equipment from Aruba Networks, we value our partnership with them and their commitment to Ashdown Public Schools. And, I am so appreciative of our Technology Department for their expertise and time to bring this project to completion."
