PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Welcome to the 2020­–2021 school year! To help protect the health and safety of students and educators during the current health crisis, the Anchorage School District will be incorporating distance learning into its curriculum. To support the learning-from-home environment, the Anchorage School District has partnered with GCI to provide you with this home internet for education kit, which provides the connection your student needs to complete their activities and assignments from home. Your home internet for education kit is provided at no cost to you.

 

What to expect

The school-provided home internet for education kit is specifically designed to access educational content. It is not designed to support typical home internet use; the websites you can visit are limited to school-approved sites.

This is a service provided by your school. If you want to purchase a faster, unrestricted home internet plan from GCI, please contact GCI directly to determine eligibility and plan options at 800-800-4800. You will be able to use the modem in this box for internet service you may choose to purchase from GCI.
