NetDay 96 - every school Internet-ready. NetDay96 is an all-volunteer effort to wire schools throughout the country to the Internet. Corporate sponsors and volunteers from businesses, education, and the community will acquire the equipment and will install and test it at every school site. Kits for wiring and technical seminars have been in the works.
Encourage your local businesses to learn about NetDay which is organized on the Web. If you are unable to get on-line, call the fax-on-demand number at 1-800-55-NET96 to obtain faxed information and registration forms. If you have access to the Web connect at: http://www.netday96.com/
Each state has different dates, contacts and goals. Illinois' NetDay goal is to have 50% of Illinois K-12 schools wired by April 1997. NetDay in Illinois will be held October 26, 1996. For further information, consult the NetDay Web site or the fax-on-demand number.
