Sprint ConnectEd Information and FAQ

How Does This Program Work?

Through a partnership with Sprint Wireless, the District is able to purchase Cellular HotSpots and lease them to families for Internet connection at home.

Does Every Student Qualify?

Unfortunately no.   This program is designed to bring affordable Internet to low-income families and EAWR is limited in the number of HotSpots that we can purchase.  The minimum Requirement is that the Family has applied and been accepted into the Free/Reduced Lunch program in the district.  From there applications will be reviewed will be reviewed by administration and will based on availability.

How Do I Apply?

First, Make sure you have applied for and received Free/Reduced Lunch.  This can be done on paper at the school or online through Skyward Family Access.
Second, download the agreement and fill it out.  Download the Agreement Here.  Once completed, parents can bring it into Mr. Mattix-Wand in the Technology Office in the Library.

Does It Have To Be A Parent/Guardian?

Yes.  Because this device will provide Internet Access at home, a parent meeting is required.
