Preparing Schools for Distance Learning

During Covid shutdowns at schools, we* prepared teachers and students for distance learning. Working as a team, we set up 25,000+ devices to send home with students.

Throughout the entire summer, we worked hard to set up the devices and get any damaged ones in working order. We sanitized them and provided extras for them to have on hand in case there were any problems.

It came down to the wire, but on day one, we set up a device for each student in the district to take home.

Additionally, we set up wireless hotspots for kids who did not have reliable internet.

We also trained teachers and staff to support their students. It was one of the toughest feats we had to tackle preparing this school district for distance learning. And it was very successful.
