Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF) / E-Rate –
What to Know

Presented By: Ben Sniecinski
Tuesday, June 22 - 1:00PM (EST)

Congress recently passed the American Rescue Plan which included $7.1 Billion for the Emergency Connectivity Fund (ECF). ECF will provide schools and libraries with the opportunity for funding to purchase (or perhaps be reimbursed for) laptops, tablets, wi-fi hotspots, and broadband connections to help students, teachers and library patrons access the internet while off-campus. This opportunity will only have an initial application window open for 45 days. Join us to hear about this program and to discuss how to take advantage of this opportunity!

New Updated FL Sample Policy Manual &
How it Impacts Your School

Presented By: Curtis Fuller & Jeffrey Wood
Thursday, July 1 -  10:00AM (EST)

The Charter Support Unit has had a sample policy manual available for Florida schools to use since 2013. A new version of the manual was just completed and released. The update includes many policies related to statutory requirements (such as the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas Act), and reorganizes the structure of the manual. The entire manual has also undergone a legal review to ensure compliance. To help schools understand the updates to the new manual, we will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, July 1 at 10:00am where we will review the key changes and updates to the policy manual. The webinar will be hosted by attorney Jeff Wood of Tripp Scott and Curtis Fuller of the Charter Support Unit. Join us to learn about the updates, and bring the questions you have about what policies your school needs to ensure compliance with Florida statutes.
