Earlier this summer, we informed you that the district is now a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) district, which allows all students to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day. Because the district qualified for CEP, all families are also eligible to receive discounts in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more.
The ACP provides a monthly discount of up to $30 per month on broadband service and associated equipment (for example, a modem) for eligible households. If your household chooses a plan from a participating provider that costs $30/month or less, your household will receive that service for free.
Some participating program providers also offer discounted connected devices (a laptop, a desktop computer or tablet) through the ACP. Households participating in the ACP are eligible for a one-time benefit of up to $100 off one connected device as long as the household contributes more than $10 and less than $50 towards the cost of the device. Each participating household is limited to a single device discount.
To apply, you can fill out an application online and submit a copy of this letter as documentation verifying your child/children receives school meal benefits through the NSLP or SBP.
If you have questions about the ACP, your eligibility to participate, or to find information about participating providers near you, please visit https://getinternet.gov/, call 877-384-2575 or email email@example.com.
