ConnectED NY Offers Students Reliable Home Internet. Applications Due April 12.

March 24, 2021

Now more than ever it's important for our students to have reliable home internet access. For this reason, Lansingburgh is partnering with ConnectED NY to help qualifying district families with unreliable or no home internet get access to internet hotspots and data plans. 

Lansingburgh families interested in the ConnectED NY program can apply directly through the district by sending their signed and completed applications to Lansingburgh's Director of School Community Partnerships, Joseph Otter. All applications are due back to Mr. Otter by Monday, April 12, so he has time to compile them for final submission.
