The constraint had been posed that not all students in the county have access to technology. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 92% of households in Harford County have a computer. For those without, it should be possible to purchase adequate devices such as Carroll, Frederick, Prince George’s, Talbot, Washington and Wicomico counties have done. The budget doesn’t allow for that? What about the savings of fuel for school buses, which in a recent school budget was $945,000? That money is reserved for future use? What about expanding the distance from school that students must walk? Or perhaps have families donate old laptops, or lend extra ones? Or perhaps have a special fund-raising campaign in which residents (with a median income of over $80,000) pledge their government-issued coronavirus stimulus checks? Or require families without the technology to use half of the $500 stimulus check received for each of their schoolchildren to purchase their own Chromebook (and voluntarily pledge the other half for another student)? What about the 13.4% percent of households without broadband Internet service? Perhaps Comcast would provide free access, as they have in Montgomery and Calvert counties? Or provide free Internet access to the school system’s Internet wi-fi from the parking lots of all county schools, and not just North Harford High School (as Dr. Bulson announced only last week). Caroline County upgraded their wi-fi signal to provide such access back on March 30.
