Eligibility to Receive Free Ziply Internet Service

Dear La Conner School District families:

You may be eligible to receive Ziply internet service at your home for free. Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program allows students and their families to connect at no cost to you. There will be no credit check or denial based on past-due bills.

How is this free?

Costs are being paid for this program out of Washington’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, using CARES Act money, which is Covid-19-related Grant Funding.

DETAILS

Services:

Washington’s K–12 Internet Access Program, by the provider Presidio, include a choice of either:

  • Free broadband internet connectivity where available or
  • Free MoFi (Mobile HotSpot) internet connectivity where available

Cost:

Free. There will be no fees for installation or equipment, and you will never receive a bill. No credit checks or denial based on past due bills.

  • You will need to pay for any damaged or lost equipment.
