  • We are excited to announce that The Foundation for School District 11 will continue to support D11 families with internet (Internet Essentials) from Comcast.   Families can apply online at https://foundationford11.com beginning today. 

    The process will be the same.  Families will receive a code in their email to sign-up for Internet Essentials and/or continue their Internet Essentials for the next year with the code that will be emailed.  We do have hotspots for families.  Staff members can email me to let me know who will need a hotspot.  I believe John McCarron will also have information about hotspots.

    Please let your staff know they can sign a family up at https://foundationford11.com.  If a family does not have an email, the staff member can use their email to receive the code. 

    All families that signed up this year will have internet until July 31, 2021.  The second year of internet will begin on Aug. 1, 2021 and continue until July 31, 2022.

      We are very excited to continue Internet Equity for D11 Students and appreciate all the help you have provided for our families.
