Missouri Connect and Learn Initiative

Printer-friendly version

DESE has announced the Missouri Connect and Learn Initiative, which adds a state match fund opportunity for public K-12 schools on eligible fiber projects with qualifying special construction costs.

Just as we've been helping our member schools navigate E-rate for the last 26 years, this is something where our State E-rate Coordinator can also assist. If you have questions or concerns about your need for a bandwidth upgrade or would like more information on the state match, please reach out to your member service advisor or Chris Schneider, Missouri's State E-rate Coordinator. 

In the meantime, please join us for an E-rate training session or two. Register for any of the following courses by visiting our training schedule.

Nov. 14, 9:30 a.m. Form 470 (webinar)
