Our primary mission for the One-to-One Technology Initiative is to transform teaching, learning, and assessment at the Oley Valley School District. A new generation of students expects a learning environment that integrates today’s digital tools, accommodates a mobile lifestyle, adapts to individual learning styles, and encourages collaboration and teamwork. The OVSD School Board, along with the Staff and Administrators of the Oley Valley School District, is pleased to announce an exciting new educational opportunity for students in all grades that will strive to meet these expectations and prepare students for the 21st Century.
As part of the 2021 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Congress created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to bring affordable Internet and connected devices to low-income households. Under the ACP program, qualifying households receive subsidies of $30/month for Internet access and up to $100 toward the purchase of a connected device (computer or tablet) from an ACP provider. However, only 24% of eligible Pennsylvania households currently are taking advantage of this subsidy.
Effective December 31, 2021, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) was authorized by Congress to replace the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) with efforts to support households with Internet and Broadband connection access.
