Arizona Department of Education to Host Free Sign-Up Day for High-Speed Internet

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 Cochise County Superintendent Jacqui Clay and Coconino County Superintendent Risha VanderWey – are hosting two “sign-up days” at no cost to the schools.

RSVP by emailing Milan Eaton at [email protected] by December 5, 2017.
