Covid-19: State-Funded Equity Grant for Remote Learning

In response to Covid-19, the Pennsylvania Department of Education is offering a grant for schools to purchase computer equipment, such as laptops, tablets, and internet hot spots, or to use towards providing instructional materials, such as paper lessons and coursework. The application window is only open from April 6 – April 10.

We can assist with the technology equipment purchase as well as other workarounds to help students without internet at home to gain connectivity. As part of the PDE grant, we can secure a combination of routers and sim cards that can enable connectivity to a home computer through a cellphone connection.

For this and other solutions, please reach out to the DES sales team at 412-531-4240 or sales@descomm.com.
