 TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:

 Subject: Classroom Connectivity Initiative

 On March 10, 2016, Governor Greg Abbott announced that Texas has partnered with the non-profit EducationSuperHighway to launch the Classroom Connectivity Initiative. The initiative is designed to increase access to affordable, high-speed broadband for K–12 public schools in Texas. A letter from EducationSuperHighway CEO Evan Marwell expressing his commitment to this partnership and providing more information about the initiative is attached. 

 The partnership advances our vision of a world-class K–12 public school system that provides high-quality digital learning opportunities for all students. That vision is only possible when every classroom in Texas is equipped with robust connectivity. 

 If you have questions or need additional information, please contact Hillary Baker, Senior Outreach Coordinator for EducationSuperHighway, at hillary@educationsuperhighway.org, or Texas Education Agency staff at edtech@tea.texas.gov.

 

Sincerely,

 Mike Morath
Commissioner of Education
