K-12 Bridge to Broadband is a public-private partnership between Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and EducationSuperHighway. It allows 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 ISPs to identify unconnected student households and optimize their use of federal funding.
Get actionable and accurate data on the number of unconnected students in your school district or state.
Discover who can be connected with existing infrastructure and specific ISP options.
Identify dark spots in need of long-term investment, and prioritize high-need communities.
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 procure Internet services on behalf of their students or make families aware that they may be eligible for federal subsidy programs.Find participating Internet Service Providers Read our FAQs or get in touch with our team
