"SpecialNet," a computer-based communications network for educators at all administrative levels, has been established and is managed by National Systems Management, Inc. Users can send and receive electronic mail, share information on electronic bulletin boards, participate in electronic conferences, and send reports and other documents to each other in a timely manner. The system also permits the establishment of separate closed systems within the network for private use, and can serve as a gateway for access to other systems and databases. It operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year, from any telephone in the 50 United States. An appendix lists the National SpecialNet Bulletin Boards. (EW)
