August 19, 2020: PalmTech Computer Solutions donated technical assistance to Oakstone Academy to prepare for distance learning.
Schools across the globe are faced with the responsibility of providing a quality and safe education amidst the COVID pandemic. It is even further challenging for schools like Oakstone who provide research-based programming that is fully inclusive to all children, including those with autism spectrum disorder.
Naturally, Oakstone Academy’s bandwidth requirement increased rapidly as the decision to adopt distance learning quickly became a necessity. As a result, they were experiencing slow WiFi connections and bandwidth issues. Joe Landy, an advocate for the school and partner at Lesser, Lesser, Landy, and Smith, reached out to PalmTech Computer Solutions for assistance.
“When Joe told me about the issues the school had been experiencing and knowing that all non-profits are facing severe funding shortfalls, we felt compelled to help get the program off on the right foot before the school year began”, said PalmTech’s CEO, Chuck Poole. “I sent a team of engineers over to analyze the bandwidth and WiFi coverage and we quickly developed a plan and solved the problems. My team loves helping the community and the mission at Oakstone Academy is one that all of us believe in.”
