TEA Connect TX Program

OMNIA Partners and Region 4 ESC partner with TEA Connect Texas to provide home-based broadband internet to TX students

Operation Connectivity was formed in May of 2020 as a joint effort between Governor Greg Abbott, the Texas Legislature, the Texas Education Agency (TEA), DISD and ESC Region 4 to connect Texas's 5.5 million public school students with an e-learning device and reliable internet connection sufficient for learning.

What is TEA Connect Texas?

TEACT is a statewide, TEA-led initiative to support LEAs that seek to provide home-based broadband internet access to their students. 

  • TEACT facilitates the acquisition of fixed lines through bulk purchase at the State level, taking advantage of discounted rates which Region 4 is negotiating on behalf of Texas school systems

  • TEACT facilitates the fixed line installation process for LEAs by working as a liaison between the LEAs, the ISPs and eligible families to ensure successful and expedited access to service

  • TEACT provides a robust implementation and customer support team for LEAs who want to participate in a home-based broadband roll-out program in their district but who may not have the available personnel or resources to administer such a program themselves
