APS Provides Technology to All Students

We have committed to providing one technology device to each student for remote learning during the pandemic.

This page has moved as of February 25, 2021. This is an archived version of this page. Please visit and bookmark the new page.

APS checked out technology devices to all students in early August. Most students got Chromebooks, though some of the district’s youngest students, special education students, and English language learners received iPads.

The devices were distributed through schools. Please contact your child's school if you haven't received a device or you need assistance.

Internet Access

APS is using operational funds to cover internet costs for families in need. Schools will be reaching out to families that have indicated they need assistance. Families also may contact their child’s school if they need help accessing the internet. The deadline to sign up for Comcast sponsored by APS has been extended to December 31, 2020. Please contact your school for a code.  

With APS’ partnerships with the City of Albuquerque, Comcast, and T-Mobile, all APS families should be able to get internet access to continue their learning.

Comcast Provides Free Internet for Low-Income Families

APS is helping get the word out about Comcast’s Internet Essentials program, which provides inexpensive internet for low-income families who do not have internet access. New customers get the first two months free. For complete details sign up online or call 1-855-846-8376. Spanish-only speakers can call 1-855-765-6995.

For families that can’t afford Internet Essentials at their home, APS will sponsor the cost of six months of Comcast Internet Essentials service. For families in remote areas that don’t have access to Comcast services, APS will work with them on getting hot spots powered by T-Mobile, again at no cost to the families.

Xfinity Wifi Hotspots

Comcast has also made all Xfinity WiFi hotspots at businesses available for free; the public can visit a map to find their closest Comcast-sponsored hotspot.

CABQ Wifi on Wheels

APS also is working with the City of Albuquerque to provide drive-up mobile WiFi units at a number of APS schools and other public locations. Users can drive up to within 100 feet of the mobile units and stay in their cars to promote social distancing while accessing a free WiFi connection. The City of Albuquerque has posted a map of the free public WiFi access points.
