Help with Home Internet Bills
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) provides eligible households up to $30/month toward their internet bills, as well as a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet.
All households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced price school meals under the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program, within the last 12 months, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for ACP benefits. Households are also independently eligible if (1) their income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level ($55,500 for a family of four); or (2) a member of the household participates in certain other Federal benefit programs—including, among others, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and Federal Public Housing Assistance.
To further lower costs, commitments were secured from internet service providers across the country to offer high-speed plans that are fully covered by the ACP. As a result, millions of working families can now get high-speed internet without paying a dime.
Families can check their eligibility, sign up, and find fully covered plans at GetInternet.gov (mobile-accessible and available in Spanish) or by calling 877-384-2575.

Extra milk and extra servings charges apply to everyone, including those on free/reduced lunch.
We would like to encourage everyone to complete a free/reduced lunch application. Some of the money we receive is determined by our percentage of students who qualify for free/reduced lunch, and the more families who can take advantage of this program, the more financial aid the district can qualify for. This paperwork is in enrollment packets and can be picked up in the office.
