Are you getting the most bandwidth for your broadband budget?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you have the Internet bandwidth to support the growing use of technology in your schools and classrooms? Are you interested in a tool that can help your school division identify broadband deals? Bandwidth needs are growing 50% per year in schools implementing digital learning and many divisions will need to upgrade to keep up with demand. Explore your own and other school division’s broadband data using Compare & Connect K-12 to help you maximize the amount of bandwidth you receive for your budget and learn about steps you can take to ensure your division has sufficient Wi-Fi in the classroom. Hear from local technology directors and the national nonprofit EducationSuperHighway about tools and resources available to you as part of the Virginia K-12 Learning Infrastructure Program (KLIP) to help you upgrade your network and navigate E-rate. This is an action-oriented, interactive session for school division technology leaders.

Preview your division’s broadband data and see how you compare to your peers at www.compareandconnectk12.org
