E-rate: A Resource Guide for Educators. ERIC Digest.
On May 7, 1997, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted a Universal Service Order outlining a plan to guarantee that all eligible schools, libraries, and rural health care providers have affordable connections to the Internet. By making $2.5 billion available annually, this program will provide discounts (commonly known as the E-rate) to eligible organizations on certain telecommunications services. This ERIC Digest lists resources containing background information, instructions, application forms, help lines and other useful information (resources and addresses are subject to change) related to the E-rate. Resources are listed under the following headings: Web Sites; FCC Sites; Department of Education Sites; Other E-Rate Sites; and Listserv Discussion Groups. (Author/AEF)
