High School Wireless Project

The Idaho High School Wireless Managed Service Project is a result of legislation that was passed by the Idaho Legislature in 2013. In that same year, the Idaho State Department of Education (SDE) signed a five-year contract with Education Networks of America (ENA), chosen through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process, to provide, install, maintain, and service a managed wireless technology solution in public school buildings serving students and staff in grades 9-12.

The Project supports educating more students at a higher level by providing wireless network connectivity throughout all instructional and administrative areas of each building. Regardless of the student’s demographical location, they will have access to the best educational opportunities. Every high school student will have the ability to learn in a 21st century classroom not limited by the need for wired computers. Students will have the chance to use district owned wireless devices and/or their own personal wireless devices, as governed by the local school’s acceptable use policies. Idaho’s goal of providing wireless connectivity will allow each high school to move from using technology that substitutes or supplements instructional tools, into a redefinition of the classroom experience. This instructional environment will cultivate the creation of new learning and teaching practices previously unavailable.
