K-20 Network

The K-20 Educational Network is a high-speed, high-capacity network that connects colleges, universities, K-12 school districts and libraries across Washington state. K-12 schools and educational organizations rely on the K-20 network to run hundreds of data-based applications that support school administration, distance learning and operations.

K-20 Network Fees for 2015-16
Most districts connected to the K-20 Network will see significant cost savings on their combined co-payment and Internet Service Provider (ISP) fee in 2015–16. No district will pay more than their total fee from last year (2014–15). K-20 Network fees will remain fixed at the 2015–16 levels through the 2017–18 school year regardless of bandwidth usage or growth during the period, assuming continued expected E-rate and legislative funding support.
