(St. Paul, MN) -- The St. Paul school district has an extra 50-thousand dollars from Comcast as a Athank youA for its recruitment of low-income families now using the company's low-cost broadband service. St. Paul is among 15 districts nationwide cited by Comcast for how effective they've been signing up low-income families for Internet Essentials. The Internet service costs just under ten-dollars a month for families with students in the National School Lunch Program. The district will take the money and put it in the St. Paul Public Schools Foundation to distribute as grants.
