To support families that do not have access to the internet at home, BCSS has installed four permanent WIFI hotspots that will be available in the parking lots at Apalachee High, Winder-Barrow High, Auburn Elementary, and Bear Creek Middle Schools.
In addition, 16 mobile hotspots have been installed on buses and will be parked throughout the county so students can access WIFI. Buses will be parked at these locations on school days from 7:00am until 5:00pm. The interactive map below shows the locations for each of our WIFI hotspot buses. Green icons indicate a school location and blue icons indicate a bus location. (Yellow are locations no longer available.) You can also access the map by clicking here. Locations and exact addresses are listed at the bottom of this page.
You can also locate other public WIFI hotspots through the Georgia Broadband Deployment Initiative. Click to see additional locations.
If you have trouble locating a bus, please call our Transportation team at 770-867-2783 for assistance.
Please remember to practice physical distancing from others at these WIFI locations. Students are also encouraged to wear a mask when you cannot stay at least 6 feet away from others.
