The Educational Rate or E-rate program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program, which provides special discounts to K-12 educational entities for the development of networks and connectivity. 

Since the inception of the E-rate program Kewanee School District #229 has been very successful in receiving E-rate funding for Telecommunications, Internet Access, Internal Connections and Basic Maintenance Services.  For the past several years Kewanee District has received E-rate funding for basic telephone services, data and voice networking equipment, servers, equipment maintenance, cabling, Internet access, etc.

For the 2022-2023 E-rate funding year, the Kewanee School District will again be seeking funding for improvements in these areas. We have filed our requests with the SLD.
