Fiber Technology Helps Green Dot Public Schools Transform Schools—and Students’ Lives
January, 2015 | Los Angeles, CA
"None of [these online resources] would be possible if we didn’t have E-rate. Having Time Warner Cable Business Class (Time Warner Cable Business Class is now Spectrum Enterprise) as a partner who understands how to navigate that system has been vital to our success."
- Dr. Kevin Keelen, CIO, Green Dot Public Schools
As a prominent charter school management organization, Green Dot Public Schools relies on technology to help ensure that students in low-income communities have access to the same resources and learning experiences available in more affluent communities. That’s why Green Dot schools have become hungry for bandwidth in a way that didn’t exist even two years ago.
Pairing excellent teaching with advanced technology
Spectrum Enterprise has played a key role, delivering a high-performance Ethernet Wide Area Network (EWAN) that connects Green Dot’s 21 Los Angeles schools and helps teachers engage with students to close achievement gaps. In addition to the bandwidth to support multiple access points in each classroom, plus a profusion of mobile devices, Spectrum Enterprise also provides reliable connectivity which is vital as even a 5-minute outage can throw off an entire lesson plan.
As an E-rate-eligible Telecommunications Provider (ETP), Spectrum Enterprise also understands the E-rate funding process and has used this expertise to help make Green Dot’s rich learning environment affordable.
