Description

On October 24th, SupplyBank.Org and the Kings County Office of Education will convene key stakeholders for a special tour of the first county in California to close the digital divide for all of its public school students in participating school districts. Already serving several thousand students, the County is expanding the system to all of its school districts. Several other counties are building or considering similar systems.

Guided by County and business leaders, invitees will be able to see firsthand the infrastructure of “KingsNet,” the KCOE’s 100% free, safe and reliable High-Speed Internet service. It is part of KCOE’s mission to inspire ongoing success in the classroom and further extend a positive learning environment in the home, enriching the lives of all its users.

The trip will include an overview of the system and brief assembly at Kettleman City Elementary School (which has a tower on site) and Corcoran High School, which has successfully transitioned into a completely paperless learning environment.

The delegation of stakeholders will depart from the Capital at 8:30am and lunch, snacks and all other amenities will be provided.
