HELP US BUY UNDERSERVED STUDENTS A LAPTOP COMPUTER THIS MONTH!
COVID-19 has revealed much about the obstacles students in grades K-12 face whether learning remotely or in the classroom.
Here are the facts:
1. Students are sitting in fast food restaurants or waiting outside closed schools to access Wi-Fi because there is no home internet.
2. Multi-family students are sharing a single home computer limiting overall access time to individual students.
3. Families are being evicted or have missed rent or mortgage payments. Internet becomes a luxury item and is often the first service cut in an effort to stay afloat financially.
4. Remote learning is challenging and many students will fail behind because there are too many in-class distractions or not enough time to ask the instructor questions.

By focusing on the needs of individual students, we are able to ensure resources are provided directly to where the need exists.
At the same time, we believe a rising tide lifts all boats. Hence, ALL in our name. Efforts that benefit individual students contribute to the success of the school and ultimately, the community itself.
One Up All provides assistance in these areas:
**** Computers and WIFI Access
**** Individual and Group Tutoring
**** Financial Aid
OUA workS with local organizations and individuals to identify worthy students in need.
Who is Worthy?
Grades and past achievement is certainly one measure of worthiness. But we also consider underachieving students whose promise is yet to be realized.
OUA vets the request and determines the best course of action to remedy the need. Students once accepted receive follow-up to ensure the resource monies or materials are helping as planned. OUA contacts schoolteachers and/or administrators for quarterly student progress reports. We may request report cards be submitted to confirm student performance and whether OUA aid should continue.
Thank you for your assistance.
