Students in need of a computer device:
Students who are in need of a computer to start the school year virtually have the option of using an ASD Chromebook. Internet access will be provided for families in need.
If your child does not have access to a computer (laptop, desktop or Chromebook) and/or Internet, please contact your child’s school to request one. Chromebooks will be delivered via ASD Transportation starting August 10.
Mat-Su Borough School District, Anchorage School District and University of Alaska students and employees can qualify for MTA's special Education Unlimited offer on Internet services.
To sign up for Education Unlimited, call MTA at 745-3211 or 694-3211, or complete the form below to get started and we’ll contact you directly.
With beginning the school year entirely online, the Anchorage School District can provide internet access to students in need through a partnership with GCI. As this is a limited resource, families will be asked to complete an application to validate their needs. Parents and students should contact their school directly to begin the process.
Approved families will have established their need by demonstrating through the application process that they do not have existing internet at home and cannot afford new internet service. These families will receive either a cable modem or hotspot device through the mail. Access to the internet through these devices will be filtered in accordance with ASD policies and regulations. Data upload and download speed is limited but will be sufficient for online student learning.
Please note that ASD is unable to offer any increase to existing data plans that families have with GCI.
