On March 4, 2013, Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho filed an ex parte comment with the Federal Communications Commission voicing support for major reforms to the E-rate program.  In the letter, Mr. Carvalho references a presentation prepared by Funds For Learning which outlines a plan that would “provide applicants an anticipated annual funding budget based on a per-student budget basis at the District level,”  which would give “applicants the flexibility to allocate their program discounts in a manner that best suits their local needs.”

The comment and presentation may be viewed as follows:
