E-Rate Funds 12-6-18.pdf
Summary: The E-rate program is designed to ensure that all eligible schools and libraries have affordable access to modern telecommunications and information services. It provides discounts for eligible telecommunications services, depending on economic need and location (urban or rural). The level of discount is based on the percentage of students eligible for participation in the National School Lunch Program or other federally approved alternative mechanisms. This agenda is requesting appropriation of the E-rate program funds ($188,092.80) and anticipated rebates available through vendors ($100,000) for use in FY 18-19. These funds will be used to provide students and staff reliable access to technology and support its use in meaningful ways. These are local funds. These funds will be received and disbursed as attached.
Funding: As presented.
Recommendation: Request the Board of Supervisors to appropriate the E-rate funds in the amount of $288,092.80 and to amend the appropriations ordinance accordingly.
