SETDA:  Equity of Access. For years, equity of access in education has referred to the ability of all students to receive an education from qualified teachers in buildings that are safe and conducive to learning in a district with sufficient resources that are reasonably equal among other schools in the same state.In short, all students should have an equal opportunity to succeed.  Technology has added another dimension to the equation, as it opens up a much broader and richer array of resources and information.  Equity of access now includes access to devices to use digital content and connect to fellow students, educators and experts throughout the world.  It also means sufficient high-speed broadband to the district, the school building, the classroom and the home.
