What is ECF and how can it benefit my school?
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted the global community, and the way in which we interact with one another. It has changed the way we teach, the way we learn and, perhaps most importantly, the way in which students and faculty connect with each other. With distance learning becoming the new normal, finding room in the budget to facilitate remote learning creates its own set of obstacles.
The FCC has passed legislation that helps overcome the budget and technology restraints administrators face when creating a remote learning environment. The Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) has allocated over $7 Billion in funding to help provide schools with technology that is required to promote an effective and equitable learning environment. The ECF Program provides funding for devices such as Chromebooks, laptops, Wi-Fi hotspots and routers.
What does the ECF program provide?
Essentially, with governmental funding schools can overcome connectivity issues between students and faculty. The goal is to provide equipment for teachers and students to use in both school and in-home settings, although devices that are used solely at schools are exempt, the ECF will provide funding for:
Connected devices such as Chromebooks, Tablets and Laptops and Networking solutions such as Modems, Routers and W-Fi Hotspots.
