You or someone you know may qualify for reduced-rate Internet service
At some point between October and February, most students will begin bringing an iPad home from school to extend their learning as part of the 1:1 Digital Learning Initiative. We have learned of two reduced-rate Internet options -- we're not endorsing either -- that may benefit your family or the family of someone you know.
If you qualify for school Free or Reduced-Price Meals, you may be eligible for $9.95/month Internet or a low-cost computer through Comcast Internet Essentials. For more information: call 1-855-846-8376 (You must call for an application) or visit http://internetessentials.com
If you qualify for school Free Meals Only, you may be eligible for $9.95/month Internet for 12 months through Century Link Internet Basics. For more information call 1-866-642-0444 or visit http://www.centurylink.com/home/internetbasics/
Note: If you qualify for either of these two offers due to Free or Reduced-Price Meals, you will need to submit proof of your acceptance into the Educational Benefits Program . To request a copy of your acceptance letter, contact Melissa in the district's Nutrition Services Dept. at email@example.com or 763-785-5529.
If you have not yet submitted an Application for Educational Benefits, forms are available in your school office, it is an insert in your district Calendar and Resource Guide, and it is on the district website under Nutrition Services.
