The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)
Free or Low-Cost Internet Services Available to All Households with Kids at Schools Participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)
Important Information - The ACP Offers Lower Internet Costs for Eligible Families.
High-speed internet is a necessity – especially for students. That’s why the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to lower internet costs for families. ACP provides eligible households with the following:
- Up to $30/month off their internet bills (or $75/month on Tribal lands).
- A one-time $100 discount off a laptop, tablet, or computer.
Charging For Meals Returns For The 2022-23 School Year
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds were not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year. As a result, Judson ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility. Judson ISD will distribute letters and applications to the households of the children in the district about eligibility benefits. Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, also available at https://judson.nlappscloud.com and submit the completed form online or to any school office.
**NOTE: IF YOUR STUDENT ATTENDS A COMMUNITY ELIGIBILITY PROVISION (CEP) CAMPUS IN JISD, A FREE/REDUCED LUNCH APPLICATION IS NOT NEEDED. CONTACT YOUR CAMPUS TO VERIFY ITS CEP STATUS OR CLICK HERE.
