Chicago Connected was created to ensure students are equipped to participate in remote learning and increase their digital literacy. The program will provide households with high-speed internet for four years by directly paying for internet service for families that are most in need, leveraging Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) to support enrollment in the program, and providing skills development training.
This groundbreaking initiative is generously funded by Chicago’s philanthropic community who has raised $47 million for this effort.
Chicago Public Schools will identify the families who are eligible for the program.
For more information about the program and eligibility visit www.cps.edu/chicagoconnected or call the CPS IT helpdesk at (773) 417-1060 from 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
