Comcast has provided ACS with this link explaining
this exciting program. As you can see, families who qualify for this
program will be able to purchase a high speed Internet connection for
less than $10 per month AND purchase a laptop for less than $150.00!
Also... for participating families, there are no price increases,
activation fees, or equipment rental fees.
Families should not call the
Office of Technology or the Office of Food Services... families simply
need to call the phone number provided by Comcast (1-855-846-8376) or visit Comcast's Internet Essentials website and
follow Comcast's easy registration steps. Due to the privacy laws
linked to free and reduced meals, ACS employees will not be able to
help families with the registration process, families just need to
contact Comcast. (Click here to learn more.)
Families who need proof of
FREE or REDUCED meal eligibility should visit the ACS Food Service
office, located on the first floor of the Anderson County Court House
(room 104) or families can use the letter they have already received
from the Food Service Office this school year. If needed, the Food
Service Office will be happy to provide qualifying letters to families.
