This thesis documents the planning, design and implementation of a regional wide-area network connecting K-12 schools, research institutions, libraries and institutions of higher education throughout the Monterey Bay area of California's central coast. The goal of the network is to enable students and educators to have access to the environmental information and resources available regionally via the Internet, at speeds which will encourage interaction and maintain interest. The wide-area network design process presents numerous human and technical challenges. These challenges are further amplified by the need to enable educators to design and implement school local area networks concurrent with the wide-area network solution. The processes used to resolve these myriad issues and the resulting solutions are of direct relevance to the K-12 community as well as network planners, administrators and funding partners.
