Assisting Montana schools with remote learning
May 7, 2020
MISSOULA – As part of our ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to helping our communities lessen any challenges during this difficult time. This includes assisting our schools with remote learning.
The Electronic Equipment in Education (EEE) Program is a joint partnership between Blackfoot Communications, Energy Partners and Missoula Electric Cooperative. Through the EEE Program, we are providing our schools with additional funding for technology needs to ensure educators and students can participate in remote learning.
On behalf of EEE Program partners, a donation of more than $30,000 is being distributed across more than 100 schools to help with technology expenses. Area schools including Potomac, Ovando, Seeley Lake, Swan Valley and Salmon Prairie received funding. We are committed to enhancing educational opportunities and understand the importance of keeping up with today’s rapidly changing learning tools.
EEE is funded primarily through a portion of our member investments. As three local cooperatives, the program upholds our core principles of supporting education and giving back to the communities we serve.
