Now more than ever, K-12 school districts are being asked to provide digitally-connected learning opportunities, both in and out of the traditional school buildings. This has given rise to new challenges related to funding, device access, and infrastructure.

Thankfully, there are many options for districts to leverage when it comes to filling this funding gap, including current state and federal initiatives. This session will share information on a variety of programs your district can harness in the near term, including E-Rate, Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), IL State Match, Technology Revolving Loan Program, and Title funds. With these resources in hand, you can make learning accessible to all of your students, regardless of where they learn.
