Free Internet Access
The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction has announced a K-12 Internet Access Program and we invite our families who qualify for this support to apply.
Reliable connectivity in remote learning is key and in partnership with the state, Everett Public Schools can connect qualifying families to local internet providers including Comcast/Xfinity, Presidio and Ziply. Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program will give to eligible families free internet access to enable student learning during remote learning.
This internet access opportunity will provide you with faster, stronger and more reliable connectivity than hotspots or tethering to mobile devices, which will better support your student. If eligible, your free internet access is available through June 30, 2021.
Step1: Check Eligibility
To qualify for this program your household must meet the following criteria:
- Your child must be eligible for free or reduced-price meals during the 2020-21 school year.
If your family qualified for free and reduced meals last school year, you must reapply for the 2020-21 school year. Additionally, if your family income has decreased, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. This eligibility includes many other great benefits. Find out more about applying for free and reduced meals on our website Free and Reduced Meal Application page.
Step 2 : Choose Provider
Through this program, you can receive free internet access from Comcast/Xfinity, Presidio, or Ziply. Your home may not be served by all of these providers. If you are unsure which provider services your residence, enter your address in the following coverage map or contact your leasing office or landlord.
Step 5: Return your district hotspot (if applicable)
If you were using a district-issued hotspot and have decided to set up this free internet access, please return your hotspot and charging cable/power adapter by contacting your school’s main office to arrange a return
