Internet for FamiliesThe City of Salem through Mayor Driscoll's office has signed an agreement with Comcast to offer six free months of internet for families who currently do not have access to wifi in their homes. Two of the six months will be free as part of Comcast's Internet Essentials program and the other four months are being paid for by the city of Salem Relief Fund through a donation by the Salem Children's Charity.

Bilingual staff members will begin reaching out to families who we already know do not have this resource. Qualifying families will be provided a code to use when applying, and SPS staff will assist families with the simple application process. The deadline for signing up for this program is May 13th.

If your family is in need of internet access or has questions about eligibility, please call 978-219-6689 and a Salem Public Schools staff member can assist you.

This is a huge step forward in ensuring that all of our students and families have access to remote learning and supports during the school closure. This program is one avenue to address internet access equity. While this solution may not work for every family, we continue to explore all options to assist our families with accessing the internet.
