KPHD schools update


Free internet access for eligible families

In mid-August, the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) announced a new program to connect students to their online learning from home. The program, officially launched on October 1, allows students from low-income families to connect to their learning online from home at no cost to them. OSPI will cover the costs of internet connectivity for eligible students for the remainder of the 2020–21 school year.

The program is reserved for students who are low-income and did not have internet access before August 2020. Potentially eligible families should receive information, including a promo/offer code from a provider, from their local school district. Families may also contact their district to request information. See the OSPI news release for details.
