This session will focus on how we responded and created a district wide digital equity access plan focussing specifically on how students access broadband beyond the school day. This session will include concrete examples of individual school, district-wide, and community partnerships that were tested to bridge the digital divide in our district and will culminate with how the district gathered a variety of participants across schools and departments to formulate a long term vision and implementation strategy. Although we are currently addressing access outside of school, we also realize that there are significant opportunity gaps in how students across the district are accessing teaching, tools, and rich digital opportunities. This session will also focus on these digital opportunity gaps and strategies to address these gaps.
