Hotspots

St. James Parish School District will continue to offer a limited number of wireless hotspot devices to students who do not have Internet access at home. This plan will enable students to “check out” a device that provides Internet service to the school’s iPad.  The plan is intended to help SJPS students access educational online resources at home. iPads and hotspots are managed to only allow access to educational online services and applications approved by St. James Parish Schools. To ensure peace of mind, these devices use internet content filtering. This device will monitor all web activity and daily and monthly data limits are also in place.   A replacement fee will be charged if the device is lost, damaged or not returned.  This device must be returned when requested or when the iPad is returned at the completion of school coursework. If you have a child that attends St. James Parish Schools and are in need of WiFi assistance for your child’s at home learning, please email [email protected] requesting more information or call 225-258-4497 from 8AM - 3PM Monday through Friday.
