The New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) is collaborating with the national non-profit EducationSuperHighway to make robust internet a reality for all schools in the state through the New Jersey K-12 Broadband Initiative. All assistance and resources through the initiative are offered at no cost to school districts or the state.
Gov. Murphy committed to ensuring New Jersey schools meet the recommended bandwidth of one mbps (megabits per second) per student– a critical step in enabling access to online learning.
Without the critical infrastructure, school districts limit their ability to meet the governor’s goal, to meet three of the Future Ready Schools-New Jersey robust infrastructure indicators, and to engage students in the latest innovative learning options.
NJSBA’s new resource page includes guidance on preparing the school’s network by taking advantage of E-rate, timelines for E-rate planning, webinars, guides and templates, and other free tools and resources.
