About this grant
The Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators will lead an initiative aimed at achieving digital inclusion and equity for residents across Michigan. Phase one of this work includes an assessment of the current status of internet connectivity and the development of a comprehensive plan to leverage public and private partnerships to connect all Michigan residents to broadband service. While this has long been an important issue, it is particularly relevant as Michigan’s children shifted to a remote learning environment as a result of COVID-19, laying bare the stark inequities in sufficient internet access.
