This webinar highlighted a collaborative report by SETDA and Common Sense Kids Action, State of K-12 Broadband Leadership: Driving Connectivity and Access. In this report, SETDA built upon the research and recommendations from prior publications with a focus on the role of state leadership in supporting districts and schools to increase high-speed connectivity and access for students and educators.

State leaders from New Jersey and Utah shared their state’s approach to supporting high-speed broadband access for all students, including details about New Jersey’s Digital Readiness for Learning and Assessment Project (DRLAP) Broadband component, a statewide broadband purchasing consortia which has greatly reduced costs and increased broadband access across the state and Utah’s statewide high-speed broadband network.
