Summary

In response to the federal goal to connect all of the nation's school classrooms, libraries, hospitals, and law enforcement agencies to the information superhighway, the Department of Education commissioned a survey to obtain baseline data on the status of advanced telecommunications in public elementary and secondary schools. Data was gathered from a nationally representative sample of 1,380 schools regarding the types and location of advanced telecommunications equipment; services currently available; current computer networking capabilities; plans to implement or upgrade wide area networks; sources of such plans and of the school's budgetary decisions for telecommunications technology; and the various barriers that limit acquisition or use of advanced telecommunications. This report contains tabular summaries (16 data tables and 15 standard error tables in an appendix) that highlight selected findings based on the data collected. The tables in this report present data for public schools and for schools by instructional level, size of enrollment, metropolitan status, and geographic region of the country. The survey instrument is appended. Contains three references. (MAS)
