APS Families Internet Assistance Program
We know that many families depend on the Internet, whether at school or at home, so they can do homework, search for jobs, access financial or government services and much more. This has become especially true with the transition to online learning during the COVID-19 crisis.
To help families that have difficulty affording Internet service, Arlington Public Schools is offering to pay for up to twelve months of Comcast Internet Essentials service for households eligible to be Internet Essentials customers, with a student enrolled in Arlington Public Schools.
Comcast Internet Essentials
Earlier this month we announced our partnership with Arlington County and Comcast to provide free, high quality internet connectivity to students and families in need during the pandemic. Since that time families have inquired about the application process and when additional information will be provided. We worked with Comcast to mail letters with promotional codes to summer school families and students who requested MiFi devices first.
All APS families will receive letters in the mail next week providing additional details on the program, how to request promotional codes, and how to apply.
