The South Carolina K-12 School Technology Initiative was founded in 1996, as part of the General Assembly’s proactive approach to addressing technology infrastructure, connectivity and education in schools. The Initiative – steered by a unique public/private partnership that includes the SC Department of Administration, SC Department of Education, SC Education Oversight Committee, SC Educational Television, SC State Library and private sector representatives AT&T and the SC Telecommunications and Broadband Association – guides the distribution of funds appropriated by the Governor and General Assembly. These funds collectively help to meet our schools’ needs for software, hardware, connectivity, digital content, instructional technologies, cybersecurity protection and professional development opportunities.
