Welcome to the Connectivity Services Wiki!

The School Connectivity Program is the culmination of several years of vision surrounding the 21st century classroom, and developing a North Carolina workforce poised to meet the challenge of a global economy. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is proud to be the sponsor of this collaborative effort. Through partnerships with MCNC, The Friday Institute, and the North Carolina Department of Information Technology, the North Carolina Research Education Network (NCREN) has been extended to the K-12 community of schools. All districts in North Carolina now have a high speed direct connection to this robust education networking infrastructure. Recurring funding has been allocated by the General Assembly to fund broadband access, equipment, and support services that create, improve, and sustain equity of access of instructional opportunities for public school students and educators.
