Access to Technology and the Internet

In service of equity, we are committed to ensuring all K-12 students have a device and Internet access. This applies to all students, regardless of the instructional model you selected (temporary remote/hybrid or virtual). We issued iPads to students in grades K-1 and laptops to students in grades 2-12. This provides all students access to continued learning, engagement and connection opportunities.

Added November 10, 2020: The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) announced their K-12 Internet Access Program which connects eligible students in need to Internet access at home with no cost to the student or their family. Learn more.

Added July 1, 2021: Washinton’s K-12 Internet Access Program ended on June 30, 2021. To sign up for the Federal Communications Commission’s new Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, please visit https://www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit.
