NC Student Connect

NC Student Connect is a partnership across state government providing resources and technology for educators and students in all 100 counties.

The program works to alleviate connectivity barriers and support educator professional development.

Investments so far include:

  • Distribution of hot spots to students all across NC.
  • Creation of accessible park & learn sites.
  • Professional development for educators in the form of four remote learning conferences (REAL, REAL 2.0, STEM Connect, & Cultural Arts LIVE)
