SETDA also co-hosts the federal policy-focused annual Washington Education Technology Policy Summit each spring for the broader education and technology communities.
The National Education Technology Plan articulates a vision of equity, active use, and collaborative leadership to make everywhere, all-the-time learning possible.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted the Second E-rate Modernization Order on December 11, 2014 (https://www.fcc.gov/document/fcc-continues-e-rate-reboot-meet-nations-digital-learning-needs). The Order builds on actions taken by the Commission in July to modernize and streamline the schools and libraries universal service support program, known as the E-rate program. In this Order, the Commission aims to ensure that all schools and libraries have access to high-speed connectivity and increases the E-rate program spending cap to adequately support that connectivity. The actions taken in this Order are the critical next step toward meeting the program goals and connectivity targets the Commission adopted in July’s E-rate Modernization Order.
