DISTRICT NEWS

Emergency Broadband Benefit

On May 12, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education released information for school districts regarding the EBB. The EBB is a new, temporary Federal program to help eligible families pay for internet service during the pandemic. Households with a child who was approved to receive free or reduced-price meals under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) or the School Breakfast Program (SBP) during the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school year, including children who attend schools participating in the Community Eligibility Provision, are eligible for the EBB Program. It appears ALL households of Portage Area students are eligible for this program. The Department of Education’s EBB website has further information and the application which can be found by clicking HERE. 

Comcast has updated their system and applications are now being processed. If you had issues applying for the EBB program through Comcast, please try again or call 1-855-846-8376 for assistance.
