Albertville City Schools adding free Wi-Fi throughout the city

Northeast Alabama

ALBERTVILLE, Ala. – Saturday morning, Albertville City Schools announced Wi-Fi access is available throughout the city for families with internet issues.

Three months in and Albertville City Schools is helping get that for its students through new WiFi access points.

“If we should ever, and we’re not any time soon, go remote, but if we should ever go remote, then we can still have our students doing their studies, doing their Schoology, schools POP, communication with their teachers and not having to worry about having that access to that WiFi,” said Albertville City Schools technology coordinator Spring Charles.

There are 10 new WiFi access points across the city giving access to students, parents and even teachers.

“All they have to do is open up their Chromebooks or their computer, go to their access internet point at the top, and it should come up and say ACS remote and then it’s just that easy to pull up. There’s no password. Right now, we do have it wide open,” explained Charles.

She said they are set up in safe, secure, and well lit areas, like church parking lots.

They are also easy to distinguish from other light poles.

“They are a big white box that has an Aggie A, black Aggie A on it,” said Charles.

There are 10 new WiFi access points across the city giving access to students, parents and even teachers.

School leaders did a demographic study to figure out where they should go, but they can be moved if needed.

Wi-Fi access points are located at:

  • Antioch Baptist Church Parking Lot – 130 First Street
  • Baltimore Avenue Church of God – 612 Baltimore Avenue
  • Cahill Church – 217 South Cahill Road
  • Head Street Trailer Park – located across from APS/AES Schools
  • Hosanna Christian Fellowship – 1276 Rose Road
  • Mt. Calvary Baptist Church – 201 Rose Road
  • Shady Oaks Trailer Park – 162 Lydia Drive
  • Trinity Tabernacle Church – 101 Floyd Drive
  • Whispering Oaks – 521 Mathis Mill Road

The school district is footing the bill for the hotspots.
