Schools and Libraries Program: Update on State-Level Funding by Category of Service. Report to the Honorable John D. Rockefeller IV, U.S. Senate.
Czerwinski, Stanley J.
This report provides state-level data on the amount of funds committed to the following three categories of eligible services for each of the first three years of the Federal Communications Commission's e-rate program for schools and libraries: (1) telecommunications service, such as local, long-distance, and international telephone service, as well as high-speed data links (such as T-1 lines); (2) Internet access, such as dial-up Internet access and e-mail services; and (3) internal connections, such as telecommunications wiring, routers, switches, and network servers that are necessary to transport information to individual classrooms. In addition, a preliminary estimate of the amount of e-rate funding requested for the fourth program year is included. Findings show that funds were sufficient for telecommunications service and Internet access but not for internal connections. A table providing annual data by state for each category is appended.
