NC’s Charter Schools Get Same Internet Connectivity as Public Schools

MCNC and NC DPI today announced that the state’s 13 Charter Schools are now receiving high-speed connectivity and services using the same network infrastructure that connects the public schools.  The North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN) provides the broadband communications technology services and support to K-12 school districts, higher education campuses and academic research institutions across North Carolina. Under the North Carolina School Connectivity Initiative (SCI), North Carolina Charter Schools are eligible to be connected to NCREN. Now, each charter school connected to NCREN receives the same quality broadband connections, equipment, and support as the school districts that already are connected.

”The goal of the North Carolina School Connectivity Initiative was to provide every K-12 student in North Carolina equal access to rich educational content that can help prepare them for success in post secondary education and in a career. The SCI is the virtual aspect of the Career and College: Ready, Set, Go! vision,” said North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue. “I am encouraged that several charter schools have begun to take advantage of the resources made available through the SCI and to connect to NCREN.”
