In 1995, NetDay inspired a grassroots volunteer effort to wire the nation’s
K-12 classrooms for Internet access, launching a national movement. The
first “NetDay” was held on March 9, 1996, in California when
an estimated 50,000 volunteers wired 4,000 schools. Over 500,000 volunteers
wired more than 75,000 classrooms in 40 states from 1996 to 2001. Today,
over 99% of all K-12 schools have Internet connectivity.
