COVID-19 Technology Support Fund
Thanks to the generous donations of local businesses and community organizations, the Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE) is launching a COVID-19 Technology Support Fund intended to help school districts and families purchase the mobile hot spots, prepaid data plans, computers, and subscriptions to online learning plans needed to access and deliver distance learning this year. 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 is seeded through a $50,000 donation from Bank of Marin and an $11,400 donation from the Santa Rosa Express Youth Running Club. The hope is that other individuals, businesses, or community organizations may be inspired to do the same and add to this fund so that more students can be served by it.
Apply for Support
Grants of up to $5,000 are available to Sonoma County public schools and charter schools to offset the costs of technology-related expenses related to the demands and challenges of distance learning.
Donations can be made by check or PayPal.
