Leading the Digital Leap: Creating a Digitally-Enabled Ecosystem | CoSN | Leadership for Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
Taking a “digital leap” means providing technology-based learning environments for ALL children, regardless of the schools they attend. We've already answered the why (the importance of technology in expanding learning horizons has been proven), so planning a digital leap is increasingly about the how.

FCC CONTINUES E-RATE REBOOT TO
TO MEET THE NEEDS OF 21
st
CENTURY DIGITAL LEARNING
Funding Boost Will Enable Schools, Libraries Nationwide to Reach Connectivity Goals over the Next
Five Years
Washington, D.C. ñ Taking significant additional steps to ensure that the nationís schools and libraries
have access to robust high-speed broadband connections, the Federal Communications Commission today
approved further modernization of its E-rate program, the nationís largest program supporting education
technology.
Broadband is transforming 21
st
Century education and life-long learning. The Commission is
implementing a fundamental reset of E-rate, the first such effort since the programís creation 18 years
ago, so that it can keep pace with the exploding demands for ever-faster Internet service placed on school
and library networks by digital learning applications, which often rely on individually connected tablets
and laptops.
Today the Commission adopted an Order aimed at closing this connectivity gap by making more funding
available for libraries and schools to purchase broadband connectivity capable of delivering gigabit
service over the next five years. The Order also provides schools and libraries additional flexibility and
options for purchasing broadband services to enable schools and libraries to meet their Internet capacity
needs in the most cost-effective way possible.
The Order builds on action taken by the Commission in July to meet another critical need: robust Wi-Fi
networks inside libraries and schools capable of supporting individualized learning. The July Order freed
up funds for Wi-Fi through improved fiscal management and by ending or phasing out legacy services
like paging and phone service. The July Order also increased program fairness by ensuring that all
schools and libraries have equitable access to funding for Wi-Fi. And it strengthened the hand of
educators in negotiations with service providers by requiring that prices and terms for E-rate subsidized
services nationwide be posted transparently on the Internet.
While schools and libraries are now on a path to providing robust Wi-Fi for students, teachers and patrons
over the next five years, data the FCC has been gathering over the past six months has revealed the depth
of the connectivity gap. For example, 63% of public schools ñ with over 40 million students ñ donít have
broadband connections to the building capable of taking advantage of modern digital learning. That gap
that will only grow as digital learning applications increase their requirements for bandwidth.
According to data submitted to the FCC:
? 68% of all districts (73% of rural districts) say that not a single school in their district can meet the
long-term high-speed Internet connectivity targets today.
? Approximately 41% of rural public schools lack access to fiber networks sufficient to meet modern
connectivity goals for digital learning, compared to 31% of suburban and urban public schools.
? 39% of schools in affluent areas currently meet speed targets, but only 14% of schools in low-income
rural and urban areas meet those targets.
? 45% of school districts lack sufficient Wi-Fi capacity to move to one-to-one student-to-device
deployments which is increasingly necessary to achieve modern digital learning objectives.
? Half of all public libraries report connections of less than 10 Mbps (70% of rural libraries) ñ or less
than 10% of the target for libraries with smaller service areas and less than 1% of the speed target for
libraries serving larger numbers of people.
? More than half (58%) of districts say the monthly recurring expense of connections is the most
significant barrier to faster service.
? Nearly 40% of districts indicate they canít afford the high up-front capital costs of infrastructure
upgrades
The FCCís actions close the connectivity gap through continued efforts to lower the prices schools and
libraries pay for connectivity, and by increasing the amount of support available for connections to the
Internet, known as category one of the program. Based on a comprehensive record, the Order raises the
spending cap on the E-rate program from the current $2.4 billion to $3.9 billion -- the first reset of the cap
since it was initially set at $2.25 million in 1997, an amount that wasnít adjusted for inflation until 2010.
E-rate is one of four universal service programs funded by an assessment on interstate and international
telephone revenues, a cost companies may recover from their residential and business customers. If
demand for E-rate funds from schools and libraries ramps up to reach the full $3.9 billion cap, the
estimated additional cost to an individual rate payer would be approximately 16 cents a month, about a
half a penny per day or about $1.90 a year ñ less than a large soda at fast food restaurant or a cup of
coffee.
By providing certainty about the future of E-rate funding, raising the cap enables schools and libraries to
plan how best to upgrade their networks and at what pace. Todayís Order also takes further steps to
improve the overall administration of the program and maximizes the options schools and libraries have
for purchasing affordable high-speed broadband connectivity by:
? Suspending the requirement that applicants seek funding for large up front construction costs
over several years, and allowing applicants to pay their share of one-time, up-front
construction costs over multiple years
? Equalizing the treatment of schools and libraries seeking support for dark fiber with those
seeking support for lit fiber. Dark fiber leases allow the purchase of capacity without the
service of transmitting data ñ lighting the fiber. Dark fiber can be an especially cost-effective
option for smaller, rural districts
? Allowing schools and libraries to build high-speed broadband facilities themselves when that
is the most cost-effective option, subject to a number of safeguards
? Providing an incentive for state support of last-mile broadband facilities through a match
from E-rate of up to 10% of the cost of construction, with special consideration for Tribal
schools
? Requiring carriers that receive subsidies from the universal service program for rural areas ñ
called the High Cost program ñ to offer high-speed broadband to schools and libraries located
in geographic areas receiving those subsidies at rates reasonably comparable to similar
services in urban areas
? Increasing the certainty and predictability of funding for Wi-Fi by expanding the five-year
budget approach to providing more equitable support for internal connections ñ known as
category two ñ through funding year 2019
While the cost to consumers of these changes to the E-rate program is small, the benefits to students, life-
long learners, and the nationís competitiveness are great.

Reconsideration (FCC 14-189). Chairman Wheeler, Commissioners Clyburn and Rosenworcel with
Commissioners Pai and OíRielly dissenting. Chairman Wheeler, Commissioners Clyburn, Rosenworcel,

Rethinking Equity in a Digital Era

 

If we want to close the digital access gap, we need to foster high-level technology initiatives in Title I schools. We partnered with the National Title I Association to discuss the best ways to pursue educational equity in our new toolkit, Rethinking Equity in a Digital Era: Forging a Strong Partnership Between District Title I and Technology Leaders. The toolkit includes a discussion guide for planning technology integration into Title I Programs, tips for building collaboration between the Title I Director and the CTO, and three in-depth case studies. Money is always in short supply. Make sure you're getting the most out of yours! - See more at: http://cosn.org/focus-areas/leadership-vision/digital-equity#sthash.nznEbxpT.dpuf
