Statewide Distance Learning Network

The Statewide Distance Learning Network is funded by a grant to the Louisiana Department of Education from the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education's Louisiana Quality Education Support Fund-8(g).

The grant funds distance learning programs at 93 downlink sites -- at least 1 in each of Louisiana's 66 school districts.

Each of the participating schools is equipped with a C/Ku steerable satellite dish. Some of the schools are capable of receiving digital broadcasts.
