New Hampshire K-12 Schools E-Rate Connectivity Consortium Update
May 18 in Claremont and Keene
May 19 in Exeter

In the spring of 2008, an ad hoc group of NH educators, with the
assistance of the New Hampshire Department of Education, began exploring
the possibility of forming a purchasing consortium. A number of K-12
schools expressed interest in forming the "NH K-12 Schools Connectivity
Consortium" to provide group buying power primarily for a high speed
data and voice network for schools throughout the state of NH in order
to enable a managed service provider solution that would also be able to
offer much needed technical assistance to schools with limited technical
resources. Information on the current status of this effort and plans
for the future will be discussed at sessions on Tuesday, May 18 and
Wednesday, May 19. Information will include the definition, roles,
responsibilities, and benefits to K-12 schools of establishing a managed
service provider solution for a statewide consortium. We will also cover
updates on CIPA and community usage of E-Rate funded services.
