Highlights of Broadband Projects in Tennessee
  • In 2014 Metro Nashville Public Schools, in conjunction with Metro government and the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, launched a digital inclusion fund meant to bridge the digital divide and bring greater technology access to students and homes in underserved areas. The fund could be spent to provide digital devices or Internet access to those who can’t afford them, digital literacy training or support for nonprofits engaging young people with technology, according to Laura Hansen, director for information management for Metro schools.
