November 14 is Application Deadline for Phase II of the AT&T Aspire Mobile Connectivity Program

By Jennifer Cobb

School districts that are challenged with student access to technology at home have a tremendous opportunity to receive free connectivity from AT&T.  The AT&T Aspire Mobile Connectivity Program is providing middle and high school students in Title I schools (or schools in which greater than 50% of enrolled students are eligible to participate in the National School Lunch Program), free mobile broadband access for educational devices, mobile device management, network filtering and teacher professional development for three years. This program is a $100 Million commitment to the President’s ConnectED Initiative aimed at promoting 21st century learning in classrooms and beyond. Applications are being accepted in three phases. The phase II deadline is November 14.

Connected Nation, Connect South Carolina's parent organization, is the proud partner in this exciting initiative. Connected Nation is serving as an independent third party administering the application process and selecting schools to participate in the program. If schools are interested in this program they can find the criteria and application portal on Connected Nation’s website:http://www.connectednation.org/attaspire
