Sign up for the Affordable Connectivity Program to save money

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)  provides a discount on monthly bills for qualifying households.  Recipients may receive up to $30/month discount on broadband service and associated equipment rental and a one-time discount for the purchase of a laptop, tablet or desktop computer.  Your household qualifies for this benefit if your service provider participates and if you have a Pulaski County Schools student in your home because our school system participates in USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) providing all students with free meals at school.  You can visit the ACP website to apply.

The system may request documentation to support your application.  This documentation is a letter from the school certifying that the child is enrolled in Pulaski County Schools and receives benefits as part of the CEP program.  If you need this letter, contact your child's school directly to request it. 

A sign that says Thank You!

We have a HUGE THANK YOU to our community for the support and encouragement of our local public school teachers.  All of Pulaski County School District's faculty kicked off this school year with a day-long mini conference hosted at Southwestern High School.  More than 625 teachers and principals gathered to learn and prepare for the coming school year.  To make this event A LOT more fun and exciting, a host of local businesses and community members donated gifts for door prizes that were given at the closing session of the teacher workday.  On behalf of our teachers, principals, and administrators, THANK YOU so much for making us feel supported and appreciated!!!
