Distance Learning Resources

Welcome to the Landing Hub for COVID-19 Support

As the situation continues to evolve, we wanted you all to know we share in your concern about how the COVID-19 virus will affect your educational staff, classroom instruction, and district as a whole. We also want to assure you that we are a partner in this effort to address the challenges that are ahead of us and to deal with the changes related to everyday operating procedures.

Since Forward Edge is a 100% education-focused solutions provider, we are committed to being a partner throughout this unprecedented situation. Please feel free to reach out to our team to let us know what we can do to assist you and your team in planning, executing, and mitigation of issues during this time!

Our on-site technicians will be working remotely to solve any technology issues that occur within our partner districts. If you need remote desktop support, but do not currently have a Forward Edge technician working with your district, please click the link below to email us!
