Equity of Access


State K-12 Broadband Leadership Report Cover

SETDA’s report, State K-12 Broadband Leadership: Driving Connectivity, Access and Student Success highlights the importance of state leadership and the various ways states strive to support districts and schools to achieve equitable digital learning opportunities for all students both on campus and outside of school. States demonstrate leadership through legislation, initiatives, partnerships, statewide broadband networks, regional networks, and/or statewide purchasing consortia to facilitate reliable, cost-effective internet access for districts. No one state has the same policies or practices, yet all are providing leadership

In addition to this report, SETDA will publish an Online Broadband Map tool to highlight individual state policies and practices and to provide a chance to share additional state examples.


State K12 Broadband Leadership Online Story Map: Complementing this paper is an online story map to provide real time details regarding State K12 Broadband Leadership.
