E-Rate Application Deadline Extended

Here in Portland, Ore., where I live, it's been in the mid-50s and sunny for the past couple of days. But for many folks, including my Education Week colleagues based in Bethesda, Md., who are facing record snowfalls, the weather is creating significant logistical challenges. The federal government is facing even greater challenges and that's why federal offices in Washington have been closed for two days.

Turns out, the School and Libraries Division of the Universal Service Administrative Company, which handles E-rate applications for schools and libraries, recognizes the inconvenience and has decided to push back the deadline for 2010 E-rate applications to Friday, Feb. 19, giving schools an extra eight days to complete the forms. The announcement was made on the USAC's Web site and can be viewed here.
