Superintendent John Oteri and Mayor Gary Christenson are pleased to announce that Malden was selected for E-Rate Category 2 funding for the 2017-2018 school year in the amount of $486,604.59.

The program is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The City has also received funding in the amount of $135,772.80 for Category 1 expenditures, namely internet connectivity.
“I’m grateful to Toni Mertz and Anthony Rodrigues for their efforts to obtain this funding,” said Superintendent John Oteri. “This grant will enable the Malden Public Schools to make significant infrastructure upgrades in technology which will not only support teaching and learning, but also foster overall student achievement."
