What our clients say about us
Working with Educational Consulting Associates, and Sarah Hayes particularly, has made the E-rate process a million times easier. Having a point of contact to navigate the system has allowed me to maximize our award and saved me so many hours of work. Sarah has been incredibly informative and always available to assist with questions.
As the director of technology for an all-girls private school in New Orleans LA, I have
had the opportunity to work closely with Educational Consulting Associates, for the past
three years. They have provided sound advice, are responsive to my request, have an
understanding of my needs as a school, and always act in a professional manner.
Educational Consulting Associates has played a major role in gaining E-Rate funding for
the School. This funding has provided both infrastructure and internet access needed for
our school. I can confidently recommend Educational Consulting Associates as a solid,
reliable company, and experts in their field.
Teri Lawrence makes E-Rate a breeze. She has done Cameron Parish Library’s E-Rate for over 18 years and works hard to get us our maximum benefits. Before she was our E-Rate consultant, she was an educator and gave free E-Rate seminars and assisted us with filing our own E-Rate forms.
Teri makes site visits and takes calls and answers question anytime, day or night. She is frendly, easy to work with and always current on new updates and filing rules. When I hear what other libraries are going thru, I am really glad we have her on our side. She makes E-Rate so easy, I don’t give it a second thought when it’s in her hands. I recommend her services to everyone!
Teri’s knowledge of the E-Rate program and 20+ years of experience make her a wonderful asset! She has guided me throughout every aspect of the E-Rate application process and served as my mentor as I learned the ropes. E-Rate can be overwhelming, but I always felt confident with Teri’s help!
Hope all is well!
I can highly recommend Educational Professional Services and their E-rate support team. Allen Parish School Board has been doing business with them for more than 10 years. Their knowledge of the Universal Service Fund/E-Rate laws and regulations cannot be surpassed.
Teri Lawrence has been our E-Rate consultant here in Acadia Parish for more than 10 years. Over the course of this time she has saved us an exponential amount of money that we have been able to use to keep up with the ever-demanding need for reliable Internet & technology throughout our district. Teri make site visits on a regular basis to our district to assist us as needed. The fact that she has 20 years of E-Rate experience & is a former educator, makes her perfect for the job as our consultant.
Since hiring Educational Consulting Associates, the process of applying for and managing our E-rate applications and funds was a dauting task each year. Livingston Parish Library hired eratesupport.org and Hank Lawrence to help navigate an E-rate year where we would need to write a new RFP for ISP vendor as our older, long term contract was set to expire. Through the process, eratesupport.org helped us realize there was E-rate funding for which we were eligible, funding we previously thought we would not qualify for. Hank and his team are knowledgeable and stay well informed about E-rate changes and rules. Working with eratesupport.com has made our E-rate process a manageable, less harrowing experience each year.
