Attorney General Ford, 29 States Urge Federal Communications Commission to Provide Funding for Remote Learning During Pandemic

Attorney General Ford, 29 States Urge Federal Communications Commission to Provide Funding for Remote Learning During Pandemic 

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford joined 30 attorneys general in urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to fund Internet connectivity and Internet-enabled devices to K-12 students whose schools are closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and who are learning online, at home or in other locations.

This month, the FCC asked for comment on petitions urging the commission to temporarily waive some restrictions on its E-Rate program to allow schools to extend their broadband Internet networks to students’ homes and to allow E-Rate funds to support Wi-Fi hotspots or other broadband connections for students who lack adequate Internet connectivity to participate in remote schooling.

In their comment letter to the FCC, the attorneys general urge the commission to promptly take action to unlock the doors of the virtual classroom while physical schools remain closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“At least 55 million K-12 students in the U.S. have, at one time or another, been forced to rely on online learning when their classrooms were closed,” said AG Ford. “When schools are closed, the living room, bedroom, or basement becomes the classroom and deserves the same E-Rate support which is why I wrote a letter to the Federal Communications Commission urging this funding.”

The E-Rate program provides funding to better connect schools and libraries in all parts of the nation—urban, suburban and rural. Now, all parts of the nation are struggling with the best means to educating K-12 students during the waves of a pandemic.

School districts stand ready to use E-Rate funded services to rapidly connect their students to high-speed Internet. In a recent survey of more than 2,000 E-Rate program participants, 93% reported that they would use E-Rate funds to connect students at home for virtual schooling, if allowed by the FCC.

The attorneys general also state in their letter that, given the special circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the FCC is authorized to amend or waive E-Rate program rules as necessary to provide broadband connectivity for remote schooling.

In addition to Nevada, other states participating in this action include: Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

CCSO cracking down on drivers who don’t give pedestrians enough time to safely cross streets…

The Carson City Sheriffs Office will be joining forces with other law enforcement agencies statewide focusing on pedestrian safety from February 22nd through March 8th.

Sections 484b.283 through 484b.297 of the Nevada Revised Statutes are specific to pedestrians.

Crosswalks are confusing for some; however, pedestrians share the responsibility when crossing at crosswalks.

As a pedestrian, at times, you will have the right of way; however, you will be on the losing end of a collision with any vehicle, crosswalks are not magic zones that automatically stop traffic.

  • Never step out in front of traffic until safe to do so. That driver may not see you.
  • Don’t walk in the travel lane, sidewalks are designed for pedestrian travel, sometimes it is inconvenient to walk on the side of the road, however, it’s always safer than walking in the roadway.
  • Try to make eye contact with drivers when walking it will help you anticipate their actions and help determine if they see you or not.
  • Cross at intersections when possible, it’s simply safer.Drivers must remember that not all crosswalks are marked.
  • Don’t pass other cars stopped at a crosswalk
  • At marked and unmarked crosswalks, drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians that are inthe crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the same half of the roadway the motorist is on.
  • If a pedestrian is in fact walking in the roadway or in violation of a pedestrian law, exercisecaution when driving past them.
  • If you do encounter a pedestrian in the roadway, notify the Sheriff’s Office, there could besomething else going on in their life and they may need help.
  • Both, pedestrians and drivers are required to exercise caution while walking and driving. Please walk and drive safely.The Carson City Sheriffs Office remains dedicated to bringing the number of fatalities on our roadways to zero through increasing public awareness about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. More information about safe driving and the state’s Zero Fatalities goal is available online at www.ZeroFatalitiesNV.com.The Nevada Department of Public Safety’s- Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) provides funding for law enforcement agencies to participate in Joining Forces to reduce traffic deaths and injuries on Nevada roadways.

Scammers never give up…

The Nevada Departments of Motor Vehicles and Transportation are warning drivers of a texting scheme circulating in Nevada.

These illegitimate messages ask recipients to update their driver’s license contact information with the Nevada Department of Transportation. Similar fraudulent texts have been reported in other states.

Anyone who receives this or a similar message should not provide any personal data and should delete it right away.

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles issues driver’s licenses and identification cards in Nevada. The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is a separate agency which does not issue licenses or ID cards. NDOT does not collect any personal information from motorists.

“It’s unfortunate that criminals are posing as a state agency to scam innocent people,” said DMV Director Julie Butler. “Don’t click on the links. The scammers are after your personal information and your device could be infected with malware.”

Officials say keep an eye out for telltale signs of phishing – poor spelling or grammar, the use of threats, or the link provided does not match that of the legitimate agency’s website.

“If the message doesn’t look right, chances are it is not,” Butler added.

The DMV and NDOT will never ask for personal information through an unsolicited email or text.

Nevadans can renew their license or ID and change their address through the DMV website at dmvnv.com. Other updates, such as name changes, must be completed in person at a DMV office.

 

Governor Sisolak weighs in on boosting in-classroom teaching for students

Governor Steve Sisolak has taken another step toward “School Normalcy” among schools that have already adopted some minor restrictions of in-school instruction.  Sisolak says he wants to monitor schools across the country that are trying to return to something close to normal learning conditions. He says the information will be used to increase capacity in Nevada classes to accommodate more students, as well as how school bus seating is configured to get students to and from schools safely. Schools that call back more students, however, will be subject to review student by student.

State Superintendent Jhone Ebert said schools can increase their capacity limits to 75 percent, or 250 people in a contained space.  But students and staff absolutely must wear masks and practice social distancing – the already established 6 to 10 foot buffer around each person in the school room.. Similarly, school buses can begin more safely transporting more students by operating at 2/3 capacity.

Traffic Accident on I-580 at Fairview

A red Honda Accord lost traction on I-580 due to ice at around 8am.  The woman driver lost control of her vehicle, spun out and went through a freeway divider and wound up south of Fairview in the southbound lanes.  The driver appears to be uninjured but she expressed concern about her being pregnant.

Board of Supervisors – Thursday, February 18th

CC Bd of Supervisors
February 18, 2021

Carson City Supervisors put in a very full day of deliberations across some rather relevant topics.  The Supervisors finally made a decision on whether to install a large covered area at McFadden Square.  It’s been widely discussed and analyzed but a majority of the supervisors decided Thursday that the covered area was not all that desirable and they voted on a split vote to drop the idea.  A majority of the Supervisors decided to focus redevelopment money on other things like improving sidewalks in the downtown area as well as along east and west cross-streets, many of which are old, cracked and damaged.  There was also interest in ensuring that the downtown areas have ADA ramps for citizens in wheel-chairs.

The supervisors showed quite a bit of interest in installing bicycle racks throughout the downtown area to encourage residents and visitors to get a better up-close view of what the downtown area of Carson City offers.  The supervisors acknowledged that it would be a good idea to have a local metallurgy company manufacture bike racks rather than farming them out to some distant corporation.

There was also mentioned asking downtown stores to contribute funds for downtown improvements so that the city is not over-footing the bill although there are bound to be some business-persons who contend they already pay enough in taxes to the city.  There was also interest expressed by the supervisors to find ways to upgrade downtown business facade improvements.

And there was also talk of establishing a long distance V&T hiking trail through town and beyond. 

When it comes to Christmas the supervisors were amenable to the idea of extending Carson Street Christmas decorations from Winnie Lane all the way south to the new roundabout at Carson and Stewart.  Maybe even south of there depending on how the business community views it.
