COVID-19 Technology Support Fund
Thanks to the generous donations of local businesses and community organizations, the Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE) launched a COVID-19 Technology Support Funding intended to help Sonoma County public schools and charter schools purchase the equipment needed to effectively deliver hybrid and/or distance learning. The COVID-19 Technology Support Fund will prioritize those districts and charters with the greatest needs based upon their student population and the impacts of the financial crisis on their operating budget.
The Technology Support Fund has been primarily funded through a $140,000 donation from the Sonoma County Vintners Foundation, a $50,000 donation from Bank of Marin, an $11,400 donation from the Santa Rosa Express Youth Running Club, and a $5,000 donation from the Richardson Family Fund.
