This study aimed to determine the readiness of disadvantaged areas in support of Electronic School Books (BSE), which could be downloaded free of charge by making use of Information Communication Technology (ICT). The present study was descriptive research which was approached quantitatively, and expected to expand the model of development of educational information access facilities and equitable access to education for elementary and high school students and the community in a remote district. This development was a model of media access to information and learning modules managing, accessing and processing information on education. The results indicated that (1) the major constraint factor in the development of information access to education for elementary to middle school in the coastal areas of Malang is power supply, with nearly 90% of electricity under standard compliance, and (2) the knowledge about electronic school books published free of charge by the Department of National Education was lower than their knowledge about computers and internet. Some suggestions based on the above findings were stated.
