Free Home Internet For Qualified Students

Elmhurst 205 is pleased to announce a new partnership with Sprint ConnectED that provides free home Internet access to eligible students with no Internet access at home.

Families who apply and meet the qualification criteria will receive a Wi-Fi hotspot device that allows a computer or Chromebook to connect to the Internet. This hotspot device is on loan to the student for up to four years while he or she remains enrolled in District 205.

Through this partnership, Sprint will provide 3GB per month of free high-speed Wi-Fi Internet service. When monthly usage exceeds 3GB, speeds may be reduced for the remainder of the monthly plan cycle and restored to 3GB when the next plan month begins. Because of the 3GB limit and because this service is available to access the academic curriculum, the service is intended for use only by District 205 students to whom the device is assigned and for educational purposes only.

If you do not have Internet access in your home and would like to apply for the program, please complete the information below and return the form to your child’s school. Qualified families will receive a letter with further instructions.
