Alexandria, Va. – Dec. 16, 2016 – Daniel A. Domenech, executive director of AASA, The School Superintendents Association, was reappointed to serve on the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) Board of Directors.   

USAC is an independent, not-for-profit corporation designated by the Federal Communications Commission as the administrator of the universal service fund. In making the announcement earlier this week, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler appointed six members to serve on the board. USAC collects contributions from telecommunications carriers and administers support programs designed to help communities across the country secure access to affordable telecommunications services.

The 19-member USAC Board oversees the E-Rate program, a federal program funded through telecommunications companies that helps school districts afford communications connectivity, including the Internet. Domenech serves as chair of the Schools and Libraries Program. Under his leadership, AASA has been a strong supporter of E-Rate, a critical component in our nation’s effort to expand innovative technologies.

For specific questions about the USAC Board, please contact Noelle Ellerson, AASA associate executive director, policy and advocacy, at nellerson@aasa.org.
