E-RATE & THE HOMEWORK GAP
The 2014 E-rate Modernization Order made new funding available to improve wireless broadband connections in schools and libraries. Some schools and libraries have made innovative choices to deploy wireless services on school buses and to residential users off-campus. Join our panelists as they discuss how to make the most of this funding to close the homework gap. Andrew Moore, CIO at Boulder Valley School District, will also discuss his petition to the FCC regarding off-campus use of existing E-rate connectivity. Read SHLB's comments filed in support of the petition.
Creative solutions like these are especially critical now since one in three American homes lack broadband, according to the Pew Research Center. Five million homes with students lack access to essential Internet services to complete their homework, access online resources, and apply to college.
