Chicago Connected is a groundbreaking program that provides no-cost, high-speed home internet service to CPS students. This first-of-its-kind program will be one of the largest and longest-term efforts by any city to increase internet access for students over the course of four years.

According to Census data, an estimated 100,000 students lack access to high-speed internet in Chicago. In order to narrow the digital divide for CPS families, Chicago Connected offers up to four years of high-speed internet for CPS families who are most in need.

Since its launch in June 2020, more than 58,000 students have enrolled in the program, which is on track to reach 100,000 students by the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

Families can check eligibility status and access their activation code at cps.edu/GetConnected.
