Warren County Education Service Center is pleased to announce they will receive $ 50,710.75 through an FCC E-rate technology grant. Superintendent Tom Isaacs received notification from EFFSD (Erate Funding For School Districts) that Warren County ESC’s 2017-18 application has been certified as “funded.” Isaacs thanked Tyler McCall, Technology Coordinator and staff for their work assimilating the data needed to apply for this grant.
Erate is a Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, which is administered under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The grants provide discounts to assist schools and libraries in the United States to obtain high-speed Internet access and telecommunications at affordable rates. It is funded through a Universal Service fee charged on every phone line. In 2016 over $3 billion was distributed to schools and libraries nationally.
