UWGC NORTHERN KENTUCKY AREA UPDATE MARCH 2021

April 29, 2021

WORK CONTINUES ON NKY DIGITAL EQUITY INITIATIVE

When school districts closed buildings and shifted to remote learning in 2020 because of the pandemic, students whose parents could not afford internet, or whose access was limited, were at a severe disadvantage. Many were falling behind academically.

To address the problem, United Way of Greater Cincinnati launched the NKY Digital Equity Initiative. It provided internet access for one year to more than 2,000 students in 1,125 homes across 16 Northern Kentucky school districts.

Challenges still remain. UWGC’s Northern Kentucky Area Center is working with Cincinnati Bell to identify families that might be eligible for an increase in internet speeds.
