On May 27, 2014, Jack Dangermond announced that Esri will provide free ArcGIS Online subscriptions for all K-12 schools in the United States as part of the White House's ConnectED initiative.  More information is available at:

Resources to help schools get started with ArcGIS Online are available at http://edcommunity.esri.com/connected.

In conjunction with this initiative, we encourage Esri customers and staff to become GeoMentors who volunteer to help schools set up their ArcGIS Online account, provide data for the local community, and provide local expertise.  More information about the GeoMentor program is at http://www.geomentor.org.

ArcGIS Online subscriptions for K-12 schools include 500 named users.  The July release of ArcGIS Online will include a new custom role ("Student") and new account administration tools for managing student accounts.

Please contact connectEDschools at esri.com<mailto:connectEDschools at esri.com> with questions.
