Please take the test to help get better broadband in Stevens County
You’ve all been living, working and learning at home. And we all want faster internet. But in many parts of Stevens County, internet access is an issue, and it's more evident now during this pandemic.
The Stevens County / Spokane Tribe Broadband Action Team (BAT) in partnership with the Washington State Broadband Office, is launching a county-wide crowdsourcing broadband speed test.
It takes about a minute to do. You can do it more than once, and it averages your speed.
Take the test and share the link! https://expressoptimizer.net/public/
There is no deadline to do the test. But the sooner it's done, the more data we can start collecting. Debra Hansen, executive director of BAT, said, “This will be an important component in any grant application, and immensely helpful for planning (and getting) broadband.”
Don’t have internet? Email Debra at email@example.com or telephone her at Cell: (509) 680-7608 and she will get you on the map.
We’ve done this before, but this time it’s better.
This test is different from others we’ve asked you to do: the technology has improved, GEO partners has the ability to analyze and plan future projects, and we have a new Washington State Broadband Office that is here to support capturing funding being allocated from the COVID-19 CARES Act and other legislation/sources.
You have the option to fill in your real address or keep it private, but the more accurate the data is the more likely we can get something done for everyone. They discard the addressing data as soon as it hits the map and don’t collect any personal information.
And please share with friends and neighbors.

WSU Stevens County Extension Director

2019-2020 School Year
Students will not return to the halls of Columbia Schools this school year, however, that does not mean learning will cease. There are many unanswered questions at this time. We must all think about learning in a different way. We must focus on project-based learning, where a student learns in many content modes (ELA, math, science, history, shop, P.E., etc.) as she or he completes a project. The richness of face-to-face learning cannot be replicated online; however, we can still have rich and creative learning. In twenty years the world will remember this time by how we react to this emergency and how we expand our connections to one another. This emergency when handled with care - saves lives. Everything else can be fixed or re-scheduled.
Be safe, Think creatively, Spread hope, Remain Healthy.
