[ARCHIVED] SLK E-Rate Webinar - November 30 and December 19, 2017

The original item was published from October 17, 2017 3:06 PM to January 27, 2018 12:00 AM

Aleck Johnson with EdTech Strategies will present a two-part informational webinar on the E-Rate program. This will not be a step-by-step training, but will cover the changes and challenges in applying for the E-Rate discount.

Part 1, on November 30, will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the E- rate Productivity Center (EPC) for application management.  It will also cover the bidding and Form 470 processes to start the FY2018 application cycle.

Part 2, on December 19, will help participants on the next steps of the application process, and point out stumbling blocks or pitfalls that may emerge due to the constantly changing rules and interpretations.

Your progress will be steadier and less stressful if you are familiar with the current status of the program and the tools you'll be using, so don’t miss it! Webinars will be recorded and the archives will be available only until January 25, 2018.
