Free Internet Access for Students

As we prepare for distance learning during this period of school closure, St. Cloud Area School District recognizes that not all families have access to internet service. The good news is that during this state of emergency, several internet providers are currently offering FREE internet access to students for a period of 60 days or throughout the school year. Below are details on two providers that serve the geographic area of 742 schools. We strongly suggest that if you need internet service, you contact one of these companies as soon as possible. Note: we do not endorse one provider over the other. Note: Xfinity’s internet offer does not serve our area.
