MCFARLAND, Calif. (KGET) – The McFarland Unified School District has approved a plan to extend fiber-optic cable across the city and allow officials to install antennas that will provide Internet services to most students.
Upon completion, more than 80 percent of students will have access to free Internet service provided by the district, a district press release said. It should be completed by December 31st.
“Approving this project helps us connect our kids with their teachers, classmates and course projects,” said Angel Turrubiates, a school board administrator. “When the project is completed, it will support our students for as long as they are in distance learning.”
The project is receiving a report from the city, which owns some of the properties where the LTE antennas will be installed, according to the release.
