EdTech Tools & Statewide Tiered Pricing

There is power in numbers! The statewide consortium of ESCs is gauging district interest in creating an RFP and securing consortium tiered volume pricing for various digital tools. The current focus is on Canvas LMS and Clarity BrightBytes, but could expand to more tools if there is sufficient district participation.

If your district is interested in participating in consortium pricing for Canvas LMS and Bright Bytes (and potentially other tools) please let us know by completing this brief survey.

You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed.
