Charleston, WV (AP) -- Thirteen West Virginia school systems and one library have been awarded a total of $2.1 million for internet access.
U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller announced the e-rate grants Thursday.
Rockefeller co-authored the e-rate program, which helps schools and libraries pay the cost of telecommunications, internet access, and internal connections.
School systems receiving funding are Boone, Brooke, Calhoun, Hampshire, Jackson, Jefferson, Mason, Mercer, Mineral, Pendleton, Wayne, Wetzel and Wood counties.
The Kanawha County library also received e-rate funds.
