Common Sense Kids Action and the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) announced today their collaboration to help states and school districts access billions of dollars in the newly modernized federal E-rate program.
In 2014, the Federal Communications Committee (FCC) modernized the E-Rate program, a nearly 20-year old program that subsidizes communications projects for schools and libraries with small fees from telephone bills.
Not all lawmakers and state and district education leaders are aware of or clear about the recent E-Rate changes and have not yet taken advantage of the available funding. Common Sense and SETDA unveiled today their new user-friendly online E-Rate toolkit that explains the changes, available funding, and best ways to apply for it.
