Iron Range schools addressing internet connection issues for possibility of distance learning
3 Aug 2020
Broadband internet access has always been a challenge in rural communities in the state. On the range, this was a even bigger challenge for students who had to do distance learning. School districts and local broadband organizations are working on addressing the issue.
"We had about 200 students and families that identified as needing help with internet if they were going to do distance learning," said Richard Aldrich, the superintendent for Hibbing Public Schools.
