This Tuesday, October 19, Océane Charret-Godard, vice-president of the Region in charge of high schools, training, learning and guidance, handed over the laptops for loan to young people at Le Castel high school in Dijon, in the presence of Nathalie Albert-Moretti, rector of the Dijon academy and Philippe Viollon, principal of the establishment.
Fight against digital insecurity
This operation is part of the new regional ORDIL system to fight against digital insecurity. The Covid-19 crisis has exacerbated inequalities in access to digital technology between high school students, especially for families who had little or no computer equipment.
At the same time as investing in digital technology for high schools (the budget devoted to digital education is 10.2 M €), the Region wished to pay particular attention to the digital insecurity that affects some families. For this start of the 2021-2022 school year, she thus met with public and private high schools in the region 6,000 laptops loan for high school students who need it most (from second to final and for all CAP levels).
Students reported by schools
Each establishment determines, according to its knowledge of the situation of the families and the needs of the pupils, the conditions of allocation. La Poste E-education provides after-sales service for the Region (maintenance, telephone support). This system, the implementation of which mobilized for 2021-2022 a budget of 3 M €, benefit from 80% financing from European REACT-EU funds registered in the context of the Covid-19 crisis. At Le Castel high school, 113 young people benefit from the ORDIL program.
