Chromebooks & Internet Access
If you are experiencing technological difficulties with your district-owned Chromebook, please call our Technology Help Desk (Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
CHROMEBOOK CHECK OUT
Chromebooks are checked out to Monroe School District middle and high school students in grades 6-12 and are expected to bring them to school daily. Students at our elementary schools and Sky Valley Education Center have access to district Chromebooks while they are at school.
Many of the internet options require proof of low-income status, such as acceptance into the Free and Reduced Price Meal program. To see if your family qualifies for Free or Reduced Price Meals or to fill out an application, please visit our website: https://www.monroe.wednet.edu/departments/food-service/free-and-reduced-priced-meals
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*
* Through a separate non-FCC initiative, additional no cost plans may be available to Affordable Connectivity Program enrollees. To learn more please visit GetInternet.gov. Provision of a link to this initiative does not imply FCC endorsement of any particular participating provider.
Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. To receive the connected device discount, consumers need to enroll in the ACP with a participating provider that offers connected devices (Note: not all internet company offer device discounts.) The internet company will provide the discount to the consumer.
