CoSN - The Consortium for School Networking

CoSN is the premier membership organization designed to meet the needs of K12 education technology leaders. CoSN’s resources support the entire IT team in a school system/district.  CoSN offers members the opportunity to access their peers,  thought leadership, and participate in local chapters (in 30 states).

CoSN represents over 13 million students in school districts/systems nationwide and continues to grow as a powerful and influential voice in K-12 education. CoSN also provides opportunities for companies that support the K12 edtech community to participate as corporate members.

Providing K-12 Edtech Leaders with the Tools They Need to Lead Change

Today’s learning environment is very different from even months ago.  Our goal is to provide K12 edtech leaders with the tools that they need to support and lead those changes.  How do we accomplish that?  By investing in monitoring policy, especially at the federal level, by identifying trends in K12 education and learning, and by developing cutting-edge professional learning for edtech professionals and their team.

CoSN's Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

CoSN is committed to engaging in dialogues across diverse perspectives within the K-12 EdTech field, to develop and promote strategies that achieve diversity, advance equity, and strengthen inclusion. Our goal is to create a professional learning community that encourages actionable changes within our CoSN volunteer committees, meetings, and activities. We also are building resources for you to use to encourage DEI as you build your teams.
