Platte River Networks Partners with Hope Online Learning to Help Colorado Students During COVID
Platte River Networks partnered with HOPE Online Learning Academy to remotely configure over 1,500 learning devices to support changing school environments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op provides Colorado K-12 students an education that includes individualized lessons paired with in-person support from experienced teachers and mentors.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought many challenges to HOPE and their students across Colorado including accommodating online learning. In mid-July, just prior to first day of school, Hope and Platte River Networks realized that Hope’s current IT network would not support remote learning for the new school year. Platte River Networks saw an opportunity to not only help with HOPE’s technology infrastructure but also help serve Colorado’s youth.
With the help of technology distributor Ingram Micro, Hope and Platte River partnered in late July and early August to successfully disseminate and reconfigure over 1,500 endpoints remotely over a two-three week period just in time for the first day of classes.
