How You Can Get Involved
Already, the President and Vice President have unveiled a series of
endeavors that serve as important steps toward fulfillment of the national goal
and as examples of future action. The President has announced:
The formation of
Day '96, through which a voluntary consortium of companies will ensure
that, by the end of the year, every California K-12 school has access to the
Internet and 20% of the classrooms in California K-12 schools will be connected
to computer networks.
These ventures demonstrate how communities, businesses, schools,
teachers and students can work together to achieve what no one person, entity,
or even governmental unit, could accomplish alone.
Students can get involved through the
Technology Honor Society (ATHS), which will:
provide an organization through which students can help apply
computing and telecommunications knowledge and technical expertise to expand
their school's use of technology and
recognize and reward students who use their technological expertise
to serve their schools. The National Association of Secondary School Principals
will manage and guide this effort, which has its roots in the National Honor
Society and the Technology Student Association.

classrooms into the information age.
