ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland will receive $210 million for remote learning and tutoring to help schools and students most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gov. Larry Hogan and State Superintendent Karen Salmon made the announcement Monday. The money is being allocated through federal coronavirus relief funding. So far, more than $255 million in federal aid has been set aside to help students affected by the impact of the virus on education. The announcement includes $100 million to help local school systems have access to the most up-to-date devices and connectivity. Another $100 million will go toward implementing tutoring.

The other $10 million will go toward rural broadband.
