  • Highland Telephone Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

    Because Morgan County Schools has been designated as a Community Eligibility Provision district, all students (regardless of income) qualify for this program under the Free and Reduced Lunch qualification.  

    Special note: This program is sponsored by the FCC, not Morgan County Schools. We cannot answer questions or support any issues pertaining to this program. Our goal is purely to help share this information with our community. Please contact Highland Communications or Highland Telephone with questions. Thank you!

    The Emergency Broadband Benefit is an FCC program to help families and households struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, virtual classrooms, and so much more.

Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.

    The Emergency Broadband Benefit is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
