Student Device Distribution

In support of continued learning for students without access to a computer or electronic device, Cheney Public Schools will be checking out Chromebooks based on need and availability.  At this time, the district can offer one device per household or family.  We ask that families who currently have computers or electronic devices for their students to use at home, not request a district owned device to make sure those without are able to receive one.  

Please complete the "Required Mobile Device (Chromebook) Checkout Agreement" by downloading and filling out the form below.  This agreement will be required when picking up a district device.

Internet Service

The district realizes not every student has access to home internet services or WiFi and encourages you to contact your local cell phone, cable or internet provider to ask if they have a program to help provide Internet services in these extraordinary times.

Cheney Public Schools will be providing "Drive-Up Internet" at school locations within the district.  

These locations are:

 

Betz Elementary, 317 N. Seventh, Cheney, WA  99004

Salnave Elementary, 1015 Salnave Rd., Cheney, WA  99004

Snowdon Elementary, 6323 S. Holly Rd., Cheney, WA  99004

Sunset Elementary, 12824 W. 12th, Airway Heights, WA  99001

Windsor Elementary, 5504 W. Hallett Rd., Spokane, WA  99224

 

The district Chromebook will automatically connect to the "Drive-Up Internet" when in range of the districts WiFi.

Free Home Internet Offers with Spectrum and Comcast
For many families with students, internet service providers are offering free internet. 
 
  • Comcast and Spectrum are both offering 60 days of free internet to people without their services.  Cox is offering a free month to new Connect2Compete customers.
  • Both Comcast and Spectrum recently put out press releases announcing their offer, and the details of each are slightly different.
  • Spectrum is offering free WiFi and broadband access up to 100 MBPS to any household with K-12 and/or college students that doesn't already have Spectrum.  Installation fees will be waived for these households, and anyone wishing to enroll will need to call 1-844-488-8395.
