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 U.S. Department of Education commissioned a survey to obtain current data to compare with baseline data (obtained in 1994) on the status of advanced telecommunications in public elementary and secondary schools. Data was gathered in the fall of 1995 from a nationally representative sample of 917 schools regarding the types and location of advanced telecommunications equipment; services currently available; current computer networking capabilities; plans to connect to wide area networks; the formal role groups have in developing telecommunications plans; and barriers that limit acquisition or use of advanced telecommunications. This report contains tabular summaries (16 data tables, 16 standard error tables in Appendix A, and four reference tables in Appendix B) that highlight selected findings based on the data collected. The tables present data for public schools and for schools by instructional level, size of enrollment, metropolitan status, and geographic region of the country. Appendices also include a glossary of terms, the survey methodology and data reliability, the survey instrument, and background information. (AEF)
