Affordable High‑Speed Internet for Low‑Income Households

A home Internet connection is more essential than ever for today's families. Since 2011, Internet Essentials from Comcast has connected more than 6 million low‑income Americans to all the opportunities of a digital world through low‑cost, high‑speed Internet at home. We partner with local communities to pass on the importance of being connected and provide low‑cost Internet service (computers, too!) along with free training to safely unlock its potential. As the largest Internet adoption program in the nation, we stay true to our mission of empowering our customers and enriching communities with technology.

At the Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union, we strive for success for every student through personalized learning and flexible pathways. According to the Vermont Agency of Education, “Proficiency-Based Learning is a key component of flexible and personalized pathways set forth in Act 77 and the State Board of Education’s Education Quality Standards. Vermont public schools must provide students with flexible and personalized pathways for progressing through grade levels and to graduation. These resources can help educators and families understand some of the changes that are taking place in Vermont schools.”
