"In the second year, the following school divisions shall explore jointly various ways and means of maximizing their collective expenditure reimbursement totals for all eligible E-Rate funding:  ."

(This amendment establishes new language in the second year that requires specific school divisions to collective partner together and peruse any opportunities of maximizing their expenditure reimbursements from the E-Rate Fund which is administered by the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC's Universal Service Fund: School and Library program makes discounts available to eligible schools and libraries for telecommunication services, Internet access, and internal connections. The program is intended to ensure that schools and libraries have access to affordable telecommunications and information services.)
