Spectrum Opportunity

Last Updated: 10/27/2022 4:59 PM

For the 2022-2023 school year, Spectrum Enterprises has partnered with Winton Woods City Schools to offer FREE Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access to households with K-12 students that do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription at any service level. Eligible households will receive broadband/Wi-Fi services for the duration of 10 months from August 2022 to June 2023. 

In 2016, Winton Woods City Schools was fortunate to provide hotspots for students to receive free internet services through a limited-term grant. At this time, the Sprint 1 Million grant is concluding, and this program will no longer be available. This year, the district received federal funding to partner with Spectrum Enterprises and provide no-cost wireless internet access for eligible Winton Woods households. We encourage our families to take advantage of this great program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I want to cancel my free Wi-Fi services?  What if I do not want the device or what if I move? 

This program can be canceled at any time by contacting Winton Woods City Schools Technology Office and notifying them you are canceling. Families will be responsible to return the equipment to Spectrum either by dropping it off at designated locations or by returning it via postage-paid mail.

During the school year, Warrior families who plan to move must contact the Winton Woods Technology Department to manage the service.  Equipment is configured to work with a specific address and is not transferable to a new address.

What happened to the Sprint 1 Million hotspots?

In 2016, Winton Woods City Schools was fortunate to have received a limited-term grant to be able to provide hotspots for students who needed them. At this time, the Sprint 1 Million grant is concluding, and this program will no longer be available. There is no need to return the equipment if you still have one. Please responsibly recycle the hardware.
