Bayfield Schools Receive $328,000 to Improve Broadband Access

The Bayfield School District will be able to improve student access to broadband with an award of $328,000 in state funding announced last week. Broadband has become an even more vital utility during the coronavirus pandemic when so many students worked remotely during school closures. But in areas like Bayfield, some families have struggled with broadband access. The Connecting Colorado Students grant award, from the Colorado Department of Education, will help Bayfield support those students while improving its broadband infrastructure.
