Technology Enhancing Student Success (TESS)
NetDay’s partnership with the West Bolivar School District in Rosedale, Mississippi, began in 1999 as a project to create a model technology school district. Based on the needs of the community, it has developed into a teacher training and development program to help schools and districts meet student achievement goals. The West Bolivar School District has a high-speed network connection in every classroom and a 3:1 student to computer ratio with NetDay labs used every day during and after school. Almost every teacher uses technology for communications and TESS participants show significant progress in proficient use of technology to improve teaching practices.

NetDay Wiring Initiatives
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.
