(WXYZ) — With the Detroit school district shifting to full online learning amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, school officials are creating technology support hubs to help families use and repair devices.

The hubs may also serve as the district’s meal distribution sites, according to school officials. They also will provide help with utility bills, mobile COVID-19 screenings, and resources for child care.

The hubs, located at 13 locations in the Detroit Public Schools Community District, will open Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Due to a large number of COVID-19 cases across the city, the district decided to switch to remote learning at least until January.
