Free, high-speed internet available to eligible HISD families

Deadline for families to register extended to Dec. 19

Access to reliable internet is an essential part of a student’s educational journey.

In another step to close the digital divide, the district is inviting households to apply for high-speed broadband internet through a partnership with the Texas Education Agency Connect Texas (TEACT) program.

A limited number of lines are available and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

Families have two ways to determine if they are eligible for free internet access:

  1. For the quickest response, families can check their eligibility at
  2. Alternatively, families can fill out this form and return it to their school office.

Eligible families will be contacted to proceed with installation.

The deadline to apply is Dec. 19.
