- Allows your district to make use of digital equity data, including by using the Digital Bridge K-12 map to visualize internet connectivity in your district. For more information, refer to the DPI Digital Equity Gap page.
- Helps increase the likelihood of an accurate match if looking up a student's immunizations in the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR).

FAQs, Details, and Point to Note
