What is E-Rate?

Mandated by Congress in 1996 and implemented by the FCC in 1997, E-Rate provides discounted telecommunications, Internet access, and internal connections to eligible libraries, schools and health care facilities.


Every year, Orion assists area schools and districts in receiving millions of dollars in E-Rate funding. Our comprehensive E-Rate services include, but are not limited to:

  • Planning
  • Collecting information
  • Preparing forms and documents
  • Filing forms
  • Record retention
  • Audit assistance

Don't miss out on receiving maximized E-Rate funds for your district! Orion also assists districts with the development and construction of their District Technology Plans. Our knowledge of state and national policies and requirements allows us to help set goals, conduct needs assessments, and assist in technology budgeting. We also offer technology integration including iPad and Chromebook deployment and one-on-one coaching.
