CPS, Cincinnati Bell Partner to Give Internet Access to Families at Five CPS Schools 

July 1, 2020

Cincinnati Public Schools and Cincinnati Bell have partnered to bring free internet for one year to help children at five CPS schools connect with their teachers, complete homework assignments and participate in remote learning. The effort is part of a pilot program likely to expand throughout the district in the coming months.

Families at Hays-Porter School, Fairview-Clifton German Language School, Roberts Academy, Rockdale Academy and South Avondale School were chosen as the participants in the pilot, called Connect our Students. If your child attends one of these schools and would like to sign up, please contact (513) 566-3895 to get started. 

Your family's contact information must be up to date with Cincinnati Public Schools to participate. Update your contact information here.
