All K-12 schools that want to participate in ConnectEd Nebraska will be able to! The project is currently working with pilot schools. More details regarding timeline for implementation and how to get involved will be announced once available.

Who is eligible for ConnectEd Nebraska?

Any K-12 public school district, private school, and Educational Service Unit (ESU) that is a member of Network Nebraska is eligible to take part in the ConnectEd Nebraska pilot project.

This includes Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) judicial schools in Kearney, Hastings, and Lincoln that are part of Network Nebraska, if DHHS approves. It does not include home (exempt) schools as they are outside of the Network Nebraska eligibility criteria as defined by Neb. Rev. Stat. 79-1201.01(03) and Neb. Rev. Stat. 86-5,100.

Is there a cost to participate in ConnectEd Nebraska?

The Network Nebraska K-12 pilot licensing for ConnectEd Nebraska for the first three years (2021, 2022, and 2023) will be paid for with State of Nebraska funds. By the fourth year (2024), Network Nebraska will set up a sustainable funding model for successful pilot schools.

Will a school district have to purchase equipment to participate in the pilot project?

The RADIUS servers that perform the approval for a user to access the internet at a guest location can be implemented at the building, school district, or ESU level. Initial research revealed that more than 50 percent of Nebraska K-12 students were attending school districts that were already using RADIUS servers. 

Will ConnectEd Nebraska solve the rural "Homework Gap" for students?

No, ConnectEd Nebraska  will not solve the "Homework Gap". However, it will make the pathway to internet connectivity at hundreds of locations much easier and more accessible. 

Is my school district required to participate in the pilot project ConnectEd Nebraska?

No, participation in the ConnectEd Nebraska pilot project is not required. However, the more entities that participate, the more accessible and easier it is for students, staff, and teachers to connect when away from their home school.
