School Connectivity Project construction nears 50-mile mark

Construction of the main backbone for a new fiber network for the Five Star School District is more than halfway complete and on schedule for a Spring 2020 completion.

Construction work on the district’s School Connectivity Project - a new district-wide dark fiber network identified as part of the 2016 Bond Program - began in August 2018. Dark fiber refers to a network where the district has control over the capacity and use of the network. The network being constructed by the district includes unused capacity to provide for future growth.
