In an increasingly competitive and connected world, it’s important that students in K-12 schools have access to modern computers. This month, the broadband mapping team mapped data published in the Utah State Board of Education’s report Highway to Our Future: Technology for Utah Schools – May 2013.

Daggett, Tintic, and North Summit School Districts had the highest student to computer ratios, with 100% of the schools reporting a 1:1 student to computer ratio. These are smaller districts with 3 – 6 schools.
