It is important that all AACPS students are able to log into the Internet reliably from the 1st day of school. Every student, whether learning in person or virtually, needs to be able to engage virtually via the Internet to access course materials, log into Brightspace, access ClassLink, work collaboratively with their peers, and communicate electronically with their teacher.
We are working hard with Comcast, Verizon, Broadstripe and our many community partners to help support all families to get connected to the Internet. Through the generosity of community members and organizations along with government grants we have received, we have funding to support struggling families to get Internet Connectivity so their students can fully engage online, when needed, this fall.
AACPS is ready to help all families who still need to be connected to the Internet in their homes. Please follow these steps if you still need to get Internet Access in your home:
- Email or call your youngest student’s school or school principal to let them know you still need Internet Connectivity. A school list with email addresses and phone numbers is available here. Please give them your name, your address, email address, and phone number where you can be reached.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name, home address, email address, and cell phone number and someone will contact you about low-cost and no-cost options available to AACPS students. If you are unable to send an email to email@example.com, please contact your student’s school to request assistance as noted above.
An AACPS staff member will reach out to you soon after you email or call to assist you to get Internet Connectivity.
