Broadband Connectivity


Our Broadband Connectivity programs support the belief that, “access to reliable, high speed internet is no longer a commodity; it has become a utility.“ These programs provide a tangible way to support our students and educators in receiving equitable access to that utility. Having reliable broadband connection is the first step in:

  • Our students having access “to the technology, tools, and learning opportunities that are used to individualize engaging learning experiences that address their abilities, strengths, and weaknesses and development as a life-long learner and creator of knowledge.”
  • Our educators being “equipped with the technology, tools, professional learning in pedagogy and use of digital tools, resources, and skills to create opportunities for students to use technology for deep learning.“ (Source: Connect Oregon Students for Learning Coalition)
