High School Sprint (1Million) Grant
Grand Forks Public Schools has received a generous grant from Sprint to provide devices and Internet access to high school students who do not have Internet access at home. A lack of home Internet access means:
- No Internet access in the home,
- Multiple students in the household with access to a single computer, or
- Dial-up Internet at home.
If any of the criteria apply, please continue reading for more information.
The 1Million Project is a bold mission by Sprint to provide 1 million devices and Internet access to 1 million high school students across America who do not have Internet access at home. Students in the 1Million Project will receive a free wireless device (depending on availability) and up to 10GB per month of free Internet connectivity during the time they are in high school. There are absolutely no required costs to your family and Sprint will not capture any personally identifiable information about your family or your student while participating in the program. Our purpose in working with Sprint to provide this support is to help ensure your student is able to complete their schoolwork from home and have access to necessary tools.
If you are interested in having your student participate in the program, please complete the survey information below and return to the school office or complete the survey online at http://bit.ly/gfpsdevicegrant. Someone from the school will follow up with all students who complete the survey.
