Arizona Broadband for Education Initiative

As you may know, the Arizona Broadband for Education Initiative provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity for all schools in Arizona to sign up for access to broadband (high-speed) internet service at free or little cost before the deadline in early 2018 closes. As one of only 17 states that have millions of dollars available for this opportunity, this is an incredible chance for areas with no or slow internet to have access to telemedicine, online occupational and speech therapy, distance learning, as well as the broadband speed necessary for teachers to utilize in all sorts of creative ways. In order to make it easy for schools to take advantage of this program, the Arizona Broadband for Education Initiative - in conjunction with Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas, as well as Clay County Superintendent Jacqui Clay and Coconino County Superintendent Risha VanderWey - are hosting two "sign-up days" at no cost to the schools.

Don't miss this opportunity to hear from our team of experts, who will share tips and best practices to help you upgrade and provide hands-on support to help you file your application, and elected officials committed to closing the connectivity gap. As a reminder, applicants must apply by this spring in order to use these funds. We're looking forward to meeting you. Just RSVP by emailing if you can make it. Or, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. Best, Milan Eaton State E-rate Coordinator Arizona Department of Education For more information regarding this initiative in our community please view a presentation regarding this initiative given to the Cochise County Superintendents by Tim Carter, Yavapai County Superintendent and President of the Arizona State Board of Education. Warm Regards, Jacqui Clay .
