Welcome to StarNET
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
