Apply to be the lead partner to codesign and launch a RemotEDx Networked Learning Community by April 28

4/5/2021

A new funding opportunity now is available from RemotEDx, Ohio’s suite of remote learning supports, aimed at launching a statewide infrastructure that engages RemotEDx leaders, educators, community members and families who share common concerns, sets of problems or topics specific to remote education. 

On behalf of RemotEDx and its implementation partners, the Ohio Department of Education is pleased to issue this Request for Application (RFA) to identify and select an exceptional eligible partner to codesign and launch a RemotEDx Networked Learning Community that drives the following four priority actions: 

  1. Coordinate the state’s portfolio of remote, hybrid and blended education programs and practices.  
  2. Identify and promote enhanced professional learning opportunities for remote, hybrid and blended education opportunities.  
  3. Codesign and build a networked learning community that considers problems of practice, unites key partners and harnesses their collective power to help propel Ohio’s in-person, remote, hybrid and blended education infrastructure toward the future. 
  4. Ensure equity is a top priority and significantly informs professional learning opportunities and all aspects of the networked learning community.  

Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations focused on remote education and student success, community-based innovative education partners, educational service centers and institutes of higher education. 

Applicants have until April 28 to apply for the grant award of up to $1 million. A technical assistance webinar will be held on April 15 from 2-3 p.m. Registration for this session is required. A meeting link will be sent prior to the webinar. 

Details about this new grant opportunity and information about how to apply can be found on the RemotEDx website.
