DUBLIN, OH (March 8, 2021)—T-CETRA, a leading technology solution provider headquartered in Dublin, OH, has announced their official Ohio Department of Education vendor status for K-12 Ohio Schools. T-CETRA can now provide a variety of technology products and services to schools and school districts across Ohio including routers, Chromebooks, tablets, laptops, hotspots, and other customized hardware needs in addition to a variety of data plans.

T-CETRA recognized that the inequity of broadband internet access intensified during state- mandated COVID-19 remote learning and responded to the challenge. T-CETRA’s goal in this initiative is to provide technology solutions that ensure no student is left behind, particularly in underserved and rural Ohio counties.

“We are thrilled to work with Ohio Department of Education to help bridge the digital divide during COVID-19 and beyond for Ohio’s K-12 students. We believe in equity in education regardless of income or place of residence and wanted to play a part in enabling equal access to technology for educational purposes. The digital divide was brought to the fore during COVID-19 but certainly won’t be solved once students resume to in-person instruction. As

CARES Act funding is available for district needs, we know districts will want to act now to make technology investments for their future” according to Abdul Akel, Co-Founder and CEO of T- CETRA.
