What is RemotEDx?
RemotEDx is a new $15 million suite of remote education supports for schools funded by the Ohio Department of Education CARES Act state activity funds. Many organizations are working together to make each component of RemotEDx a reality: the Ohio Department of Education, Philanthropy Ohio, the Ohio Distance Learning Association, Ohio’s Educational Service Centers, INFOhio, Ohio’s Information Technology Centers, and the Management Council. The Connectivity Champions will help schools and families implement the connectivity funded by the $50M BroadbandOhio Connectivity Grant that was recently distributed to over 900 districts and schools in Ohio.
What does this mean?
It means Connectivity Champions will provide all Ohio school districts, community schools, JVSD, STEM, and non-public schools with support to get students connected to the internet from home. Connectivity Champions work closely with Ohio’s Information Technology Centers to help support students and their families with household connectivity to enable remote learning. If your students and parents are struggling with a home internet connection, the Connectivity Champions can help.
