Five years ago, an unprecedented coalition united behind a simple, but important, goal: to improve broadband in America’s K-12 classrooms. As EducationSuperHighway approaches the completion of its mission in 2020, we are working to sustain the momentum created to ensure technology can be fully integrated into teaching and learning throughout our schools.
Every day we see how strong leadership and actionable data helps students get the high-speed connectivity they need to access digital learning opportunities. Our aim is to partner with an organization (or multiple organizations) to equip state leaders with the information necessary to continue to drive K-12 broadband upgrades in their states and ensure districts meet the 1 Mbps per student bandwidth goal.
EducationSuperHighway is developing a software product (going by code name of JAM) that leverages public data to surface essential information on K-12 broadband access and E-rate usage at the national, state, and district level.
We are now requesting information from organizations interested in exploring a partnership to manage this product. To indicate your organizations interest, please submit an expression of interest by March 1, 2019.
This is a request for information (RFI) to operate a software product and business processes that will help state leaders to ensure that every school and classroom in America can support digital learning through 2025.
The RFI is now available to download.
