Hello Jefferson Parents,

Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

    1. This program provides eligible households up to $30 a month off internet bills and a one-time $100 discount off a connected device.
    2. Visit to learn more.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) established the ACP, providing eligible households up to $30 a month off internet bills and a one-time $100 discount off a connected device. The Administration secured commitments from internet service providers across the country to offer high-speed plans that are fully covered -- meaning millions of families can get high-speed internet at no cost. An estimated 40% of households qualify for the ACP, including those with an income at or below 200% of the federal poverty level ($55,500 for a family of four) and those participating in certain federal programs (without regard to income). is a one-stop shop to check eligibility and sign up. Moreover, the Department released a Back to School ACP Toolkit with a ready-to-use backpack flyer that schools and community partners may use to help students and their families enroll.

House Number Visibility

SPAPSD Families,

If your child is riding the school bus, we would appreciate your help in ensuring that your house or fire number is visible on your mailbox or house. Please check your mailbox/house for number visibility and that these are not blocked by low-hanging branches or shrubs.

Number visibility will specifically help relief drivers to do their job more effectively by ensuring that pickup locations are clearly marked as we head into winter months with limited daylight during AM/PM routes.

Thank you for your assistance!
