Help bring better broadband to our school district!

State and federal agencies are getting ready to spend billions on rural broadband. This could be a game-changer for families in our district who have slow or no internet access right now. We need to make sure those agencies understand just how widespread the need is.

To increase the chances of an upgrade, we need everyone to complete the steps below:

1️⃣. Run a speed test: The State of Ohio uses Speedtest by Ookla® to identify locations that need better broadband. Run a free speed test on your home wi-fi or from wherever your children normally access the internet: https://connectingappalachia.org/speedtest

2️⃣. Complete a rural broadband survey: Decision-makers need to understand just how important broadband is to students and their families. Complete this 5-minute survey to share your experience with broadband in your neighborhood: https://connectingappalachia.org/survey
