K-12 Bridge to Broadband enables states or school districts to submit anonymized student addresses and receive back a list of unconnected addresses and the ISPs that can connect them for remote learning.
The program is built around a data exchange platform that enables states and school districts to partner with ISP to identify unconnected student households and optimize their use of federal funding.
With data sharing agreements in place, states and school districts share de-identified student addresses with ISPs using our secure data exchange platform. ISPs confirm if they currently serve each address or if they can serve each address, resulting in a complete dataset that identifies unconnected student households.
States or school districts can then use this actionable data to procure Internet services on behalf of their students or make families aware that they may be eligible for federal subsidy programs.
