Broadband Infrastructure Improvement Grant (BIIG)

  Friday, August 29, 2014

In response to Governor Brown’s direction and funding to address critical infrastructure needs, the California Department of Education has released information on the Broadband Infrastructure Improvement Grant program (BIIG). Click here for a link to the announcement.

The school sites that will qualify for funding are those that—for reasons related to their connection to the Internet-- were unable (in the 2014 Field Test) or will be unable in spring 2015, to administer the computer-based assessments without intervention.

We hope that most of your questions will be answered in the BIIG 1.0 flyer, or at the webpage devoted to the effort, http://k12hsn.org/biig.

Webinar Opportunity

For more information about the Broadband Infrastructure Improvement Grant, please participate in one of our informational webinars. We’ll have two sessions on Wednesday, September 10, one at 10:00 am and a repeat session at 3:30 pm.

Questions related to the program may be directed to the K-12 High Speed Network.
