SAVE THE DATE ~ IMPORTANT ERATE WORKSHOPS
OCTOBER 22ND & 29TH, 2014
BROOKLYN AND QUEENS
LOCATION AND TIMES TBA

The Federal Communications Commission will soon be releasing formal decisions (“Orders”) that will render significant reform to the ERATE Program.

Please be assured that for months our consultants at TeleTech Associates have been monitoring these anticipated changes very closely. Recently, they created a posting to their website which speculates what these changes may mean to Catholic schools. TeleTech Associates will update this link as more information evolves.

TeleTech Associates has also reserved seats for an ERATE training session in early October 2014. By that point, it is likely these changes will be more tangible and in place for the 2015 funding cycle. In turn, they will prepare a plan of action to disseminate what the changes will mean to the Catholic schools in Brooklyn and Queens – well before the 2015 deadlines.

Please save these dates – October 22nd and October 29th. We will be facilitating special ERATE workshops in Brooklyn and Queens. Specific locations/times will be provided in a future email (late August).

Please note:
1. Please know that we are available all summer should any of you receive a PIA (Program Integrity Assurance ) Review or have questions about the current funding cycle.
2. For schools that expressed interest in the Tablets, be assured the applications were all submitted and certified, however no additional information has been available from ERATE regarding these applications. We remain hopeful that these applications will be reviewed and approved in a timely manner.

Respectfully,
