IDEA Partners with TEA Connect Texas to Provide Free, Fast Internet to IDEA Texas Families who Lack Access

Team & Family, it’s time to get connected! 

IDEA has partnered with TEA Connect Texas to provide free, high-speed home internet for students who currently lack adequate access! All IDEA families without internet in Texas are eligible for this 100% free service. This new partnership is part of our commitment to support students at school and at home with equitable access to the highest-quality education on the path to and through college.  

The process is quick and easy. Read on for three simple next steps to secure free, high-speed internet at home: 

Step 1: visit and type or select IDEA PUBLIC SCHOOLS, (108807) in the bar labeled “select your school or school district.” 

Step 2: fill out the appropriate information. Please have your student ID number(s), phone number and email address accessible, as this information will be required to proceed. 

Step 3: enter your address to set up home installation.  

That’s it! Once we confirm the following information below, TEA Connect Texas will contact you to arrange the installation: 

  1. Your student is currently enrolled with IDEA Public Schools.
  2. You do not currently have internet service.
  3. Your household can be serviced by a major participating provider (Spectrum, AT&T, Comcast).
