Home Access Playbook
This Playbook outlines seven strategies, or “plays,” that state leaders are taking to address issues of home internet and device access for students. The plays address several of the needs identified by state leaders in the listening sessions, including a need for more accurate broadband availability data and data on students’ home broadband access, a need for continued collaboration across government agencies and with internet service providers (ISPs) and community partners, and a need for additional training for teachers and families to effectively use the technology to improve student learning.
Each play provides a brief overview outlining the importance of the play, frequently asked questions that provide additional background context, exemplars that demonstrate each play in practice, a checklist of considerations for implementing the play, and key questions to ask for each consideration.
