EETT Funding CUT
Send a Letter Today and Visit Your Representative Next Week

As Congress continues to debate the FY11 budget, it has never been more important that your federal legislators know how important the Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) program is for your students.  

Last week, leadership in the House of Representatives introduced legislation that would eliminate funding for the EETT program in the 2011 budget.  Starting next school year, this cut will eliminate all federal funding for educational technology.  The President's proposed budget also completely eliminated the EETT program in FY12. 

We are asking you to do two things to let Congress know the value of EETT funds in preparing our students for the future.  
  1. First, email your Congressional members today and ask them to fund EETT with at least $100 million in the FY11 budget.  Click here to send a letter.
  2. Second, visit your House and Senate members next week, February 21-25, during the Congressional Work Week when they are in their home districts.  This is the perfect opportunity to let your members know in person how important EETT funding is for your students.  Information on how to schedule and conduct a meeting with your representatives can be found here.
Please join us maintaining the Enhancing Education Through Technology Program for our students!
We need your voice!  Thank you on behalf of CoSN & ISTE for taking part in this effort.
