CARES Act FAQs

Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was enacted on March 27th, 2020. It allows education institutions to use certain funds allocated by the Department of Educaiton to support students and institutions with expenses and financial needs related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The fund can be used for purchasing educational technology to support online learning for all K-12 and university students and for additional activities authorized by federal school laws.
 

Your school has indicated they want to  help cover the cost of your student’s internet access.

Your school will provide details on the amount of the subsidy and for what time period. This can change at any time.

Your school has not provided Cox with your address as being eligible for this program. Please reach out to your school if you feel you should qualify.

Students are welcome to upgrade their service at any time. The account holder or authorized user will need to contact Cox directly to verify they are eligible and request the change in service. However, all questions regarding the services and amounts your school will subsidize should be directed to your school.

Cox provides consolidated bills to our customers, meaning all the services they have with Cox are included on a single bill each month. Any other services that are not being paid by the school will need to be paid as they are today. Any payments made by the school will reflect as a partial payment on the account. You can always keep up to date on the balance by downloading the Cox App or visitng cox.com/mybill.

All financial obligations are between Cox and the families whose name appears on the Cox account (account holder). The account holder is responsible for the full balance due on the account, by the due date listed on the bill each month, and subject to any additional fees that may apply, including late fees and equipment costs. Any payment made by the school will be posted as a payment to the student, but ultimately it is the account holder who is responsible for the balance due.

It is the responsibility of the school to communicate their intentions with the students. The parent of the student would need to contact Cox should they wish to discontinue service once the school is no longer making payments.

No, all services are provided to the families directly by Cox Residential services. The services are governed under the Cox Residential Customer Service Agreement, all residential terms of service and associated policies, including privacy and acceptable use. These terms and conditions can be found online at cox.com/policy.

Yes. It is the responsibibility of the parent/account holder to contact Cox should they wish to discontinue their service once the school is no longer making payments.
