Starting Wednesday, Aug. 26, Daviess County Schools (DCPS) district school buses equipped with WiFi will be stationed at 10 different locations around the county from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Students will have the opportunity to access the internet to download assignments and educational videos.
All students, families, and staff members are asked to follow health and safety practices such as social distancing and wearing face masks at all times while on site.
DCPS school bus community WiFi locations:
- Panther Creek Park
- Thompson Berry Park
- Legion Park
- Horse Fork Creek Park
- Yellow Creek Park
- Shifley Park
- Chuck Gray Court
- Combest Pool parking lot
- Colony Mobile Home Park
- Riverbend Mobile Home Park
The buses will be on site every weekday while DCPS schools operate under the "Red" status of the district's stoplight model, which means all students are participating in virtual learning.
When the district switches to "Yellow" status, which allows in-person instruction on the A-B schedule, the WiFi buses will be at the community locations on Wednesdays only - as Wednesday's are digital learning days for all students under the "Yellow" status.
Daviess County Public Schools students will return to class on Aug 26 under the district's "Red" status of its stoplight model, meaning students will start school with a Non-Traditional Instruction/Digital platform.
DCPS will keep the “Red” model (NTI/Digital) program in place at least until Monday, Oct. 12, upon the district's return from Fall Break.
