• What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

     The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a U.S. government program run by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices like a laptop or tablet.


    You are likely eligible if your household’s income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line, or if you or someone you live with currently receives a government benefit like SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, WIC, Pell Grant, or Free and Reduced-Price Lunch.


    If your household is eligible, you could receive:

    • Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service
    • Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
    • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
    • A low cost service plan that may be fully covered through the ACP*

    Check if You Qualify

    See if your household fits into any eligible categories.

  • Student Vaccine Requirement


    On December 1, 2021, Board of Education voted to amend the  Board Policy 541.29 - COVID-19 Student Vaccine Requirement due date, which implements the Resolution the Board previously adopted requiring COVID-19 vaccines for all students ages 12 and up.


    Jan. 28, 2022 UPDATE

    Last October, the Board of Education adopted Board Policy 5141.29, which requires students 12 years old and up to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend school in-person as of January 1, 2022. Under the policy, a number of exemptions are available to students who are not fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated students would also be offered enrollment at the District’s online independent study program at Sojourner Truth.
    Initially, the policy required that the District unenroll from in-person school any unvaccinated student without a valid exemption starting January 1, 2022. In December, the Board voted to delay the deadline to be unenrolled to January 31, 2022.
    At the most recent Board meeting this week, the Board delayed the deadline even further, to August 1, 2022. That means all students can continue to attend school in-person regardless of vaccine status for the entire spring semester.
    Students who are 12+ years old are still required to be vaccinated and boosted as soon as they are eligible. As we have seen through the omicron surge, COVID-19 can be very aggressive, and it is more likely to infect people who are not vaccinated, and much more likely to make unvaccinated people very sick. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your family, and our entire community.
