Emergency broadband Benefit News Release

Today, the Oklahoma Society for Technology in Education (OKSTE) announced it is working to help build consumer awareness about the Emergency Broadband Benefit, a new Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program.  The temporary benefit will help to lower the cost of broadband service for eligible households during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. 

The $3.2B Emergency Broadband Benefit program provides a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for qualifying households on qualifying Tribal lands.  The benefit also provides up to a $100 per household discount toward a one-time purchase of a computer, laptop, or tablet if the household contributes more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase through a participating broadband provider. 

A household is eligible if one member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:  

  • Has an income that is at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or participates in certain assistance programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid or the FCC’s Lifeline program;
  • Approved to receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, in the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school year;
  • Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year;
  • Experienced a substantial loss of income through job loss or furlough since February 29, 2020 and the household had a total income in 2020 at or below $99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers; or
  • Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating provider’s existing low-income or COVID-19 program.

Emergency Broadband Benefit enrollment will begin (opened) on May 12, 2021. Eligible households can enroll through a participating broadband provider or directly with the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC)using an online or mail-in application.  Additional information about the Emergency Broadband Benefit is available at  www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit, or by calling 833-511-0311 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. any day of the week.

Pryor High School Innovation Center at RSU Slated to Open This Fall

RSUThe Pryor Public School Board approved a new partnership between Pryor High School and Rogers State University during Monday’s board meeting. The collaboration will result in the opening of the Pryor High School Innovation Center at RSU this fall. “Our new partnership between Pryor High School and RSU is innovative and unique in Oklahoma,” said Dr. Don Raleigh, superintendent of Pryor Public Schools. “Establishing a high school innovation center on a university campus streamlines the educational experience for our students and allows them the opportunity to make the most of their concurrent enrollment.”

Beginning their junior year, students at Pryor High School will be able to choose an accelerated pathway to earn credits towards earning a college degree. Students will earn high school and college credit at the same time, potentially earning up to an entire year of college course work before high school graduation.

“This partnership fits perfectly into the university’s mission to provide a more highly educated workforce, enhance the economic development of the region and increase the quality of life for the residents of Mayes County and all of northeast Oklahoma,” said Dr. Larry Rice, RSU president.

The Pryor High School Innovation Center will be housed at the RSU Pryor Campus in the MidAmerica Industrial Park. The center will be home to the following Pryor High School courses:

  • Esports program
  • Tech Lab 
  • Manufacturing I and II, 
  • SREB Honors Applied Engineering, and 
  • Robotics
  • EMT

The partnership with RSU will allow Pryor students to choose dual credit
opportunities taught by Pryor High School instructors:

  • College Algebra 
  • Computer Science
  • English Composition I and II
  • Spanish 
  • German
  • Accounting I & II
  • Business Communications


College Algebra and English Composition I and II will be offered at both the High School Campus and the Innovation Center to create more flexibility in scheduling for students.

The new PPS transportation center will provide a shuttle service for students attending classes at the Innovation Center.  “This is a great opportunity for all students who in the past haven’t been able to attend college classes due to transportation issues,” said PHS Principal, JR Winton.

Classes will begin at the new Innovation Center in August 2021.
