District Provided Hotspots


Hollywood Hill records indicate that some of our families have a district hotspot checked out.

The District has informed us that NDS's Mobile Hotspot Program is ending Friday, June 30th. All checked-out hotspots will need to be returned to Hollywood Hill (Mrs. Bains at rbains@nsd.org)) on or before Tuesday, June 20th. Plan to return your hotspot and charger to the office or have your student hand it to their teacher. All NSD hotspots will be deactivated on Friday, June 30th.

NSD is giving families lead time to make other internet service arrangements.

Alternate internets plans are available through the Affordable Connectivity Program; this service will give you more robust service than a hotspot can offer. 

Affordable Connectivity Program


The ACP Provides eligible households a discount of up to $30 per month off their internet bills (or up to $75 per month for households living on Tribal lands), as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 off an eligible connected device like a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. In many cases, households can get high-speed internet without any cost by choosing a fully covered internet plan.
Households are eligible to participate in the ACP if any of the following applies:

  • A child participates in the Free and Reduced-Priced School Lunch or Breakfast program, including at Community Eligibility Provision schools
  • The household's income is 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or less (currently $60,000 for a family of four)
  • A member of the household participates in certain other federal programs, like Medicaid or SNAP; OR
  • The household meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider's existing low-income plan.

All hotspots will be deactivated in late June.
