Montana: Darby K-12 Schools
Darby School District’s leaders had long been committed to using digital learning to expand students’ educational opportunities, but with a low bandwidth connection and no access to fiber nearby, the administration realized the necessity of proactively searching for options to upgrade. Going out to bid for all possible solutions, Darby's project received notice from a range of providers. Out of five potential companies, the district chose a provider that agreed to construct fiber down an 18-mile stretch to the district and the surrounding community. Now, Darby is in a position to fully enable digitally-rich classroom experiences.
