By the Deputy Chief, Telecommunications Access Policy Division, Wireline Competition Bureau:
1. We grant an appeal filed by Little Flower School (Little Flower) of a decision by the
Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) reducing a discount sought in an application for
services under the E-rate program for funding year 2006.' Specifically, USAC reduced funding because
the applicant's requested discount level was not supported by sufficient documentation2 after Little
Flower inadvertently submitted the wrong document to USAC during the review process.' On appeal to
USAC, Little Flower provided USAC with the correct survey it sent to students, but USAC denied the
appeal because, at the time, USAC did not accept new information on appeal. Consistent with the
Academia Claret Order and other precedent, we grant the appeal and remand the underlying application
to USAC for further action consistent with this order.5 We direct USAC to use the documentation that
Little Flower submitted with its appeal to demonstrate support for Little Flower's discount level.

the Commission's rules provides that any person aggrieved by an action taken by a division of USAC may seek
