Back to School? Broadband Solutions for Online Learning

July 16, 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. ET


Download the Slide Deck

"Back to school" will not mean "back to normal" this fall. Almost every school system is making plans for a hybrid teaching model that includes significant online learning from home. Unfortunately, in some school districts, 20 to 30 percent of students do not have broadband at home, which poses a significant barrier to educational opportunity. Many school systems are struggling to address this broadband learning gap - some are providing hot spots and devices, others are upgrading their school broadband networks, while still others are exploring innovative options to provide their own wireless broadband services. SHLB's upcoming webinar explores how K-12 schools can prepare to meet the broadband challenges and needs of back-to-school during COVID-19.
