What is KSCADE?

The KSCADE (K-12 Schools/College Alliance for Distance Education) network began in 1998, with the goal of providing participating schools with greater educational opportunities through the use of videoconferencing resources. Linking over 25 K-12 and higher education members, KSCADE forms a consortium within the greater Fox Valley region.  As a member of the consortium, schools have the capability to receive a wide variety of high school and college-level courses, but may also broadcast their unique or high demand courses to other schools in the Fox Valley and throughout the state.

Along with courses for high school students, KSCADE members participate in many other types of programming on the network including K-8 enrichment programs, courses and meetings for teachers and staff, and community focused events, such as EMT training, Master Gardener classes and degree coursework from member colleges.
