Dear CoSN Members,

Last week CoSN and other national partners called on the Federal Communications Commission to take action to fund cybersecurity given the epidemic of cyber attacks on K-12 school systems.

Our member, Los Angeles Unified School District (Los Angeles Unified), continues to work toward full operational capacity following a massive September 2022 ransomware attack.  CoSN and Los Angeles Unified Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho invite you to join us in a collective effort to urge the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) immediately authorize the ongoing, permanent use of existing E-Rate Program funds to bolster and maintain IT security infrastructure.

We kindly request your district join this coalition letter by submitting this form no later than 3 pm PT on Tuesday, September 20th. A final copy of the letter will be shared with you once submitted to the FCC. If you have any questions, please contact LAUSD’s Director of Legislative Affairs and Governmental Relations Martha Alvarez at martha.alvarez1@lausd.net.

Please sign on.
