CLN is presenting with state agencies at the SEDTA conference on November 16 on "Digital Equity: Mapping a Path Forward."
This session will address the intersection of Digital Equity, eLearning, and state strategic plans. The state of New Mexico Department of Information Technology has recently published their broadband strategic plan and identified underserved addresses. The Public Education Department has shared student addresses under an MOU and a non-disclosure agreement to match underserved students with service providers. The mapping program in New Mexico is very robust and now includes WiFi hotspots offered by schools, libraries, and service providers and underserved addresses are also mapped. The governor has offered money from GEER funds to connect underserved students.
