In order to provide Pennsylvania’s schools and libraries with updated information concerning program changes, pitfalls, filing reminders, funding announcements, and trainings, the Pennsylvania E-rate Coordinator maintains an active one-way listserve. Typically, 8-12 messages are sent per month, depending on program activity. To subscribe, e-mail Julie Tritt Schell at with your name, organization and e-mail address (e-mail addresses are never shared). A list of previous listserve messages dating back to the program’s inception can be found under the Listserve Archive Erate-arrow.
