ISTE Encourages Educators to Speak Up on E-rate

Fifteen Days Remain to Share E-Rate Success Stories With Federal Communications CommissionWASHINGTON, D.C. –Oct. 2, 2013 – For the next 15 days, educators will have a rare opportunity to directly impact decisions about E-rate policy in Washington, D.C. It’s an unconventional prospect given the budget impasse, which caused the government to shut down yesterday.Due to this unfortunate turn of events, the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) electronic filing system will be unavailable until normal government operations resume. To assist educators who want to file comments about the E-rate before the October 16 deadline, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE®) has created a simple and easy-to-complete, online form. Educators can send their comments and ISTE will assist them in making their filings when the government reopens.
