Welcome to StarNET

StarNet Logo


The StarNET fiber network will link all local public school districts in Ingham county by the end of the 2009-10 school year. Through this collaborative network, schools will be able to leverage local and ISD resources to enhance educational opportunities and share resources in a cost effective manner.

The need for this network was driven by the expanded use of:

  • online resources,
  • on demand video,
  • family access to student information,
  • student access to curricular information,
  • online classes,
  • online supplements to classes
  • and the increased need for bandwidth.

StarNet will provide an infrastructure that will assist schools to:

  • Increase Learning Opportunities/Shared Classes for Students
  • Share of Technology Staff and Services
  • Share of Common Software Systems and Other Resources
  • Increase Bandwidth
