E-Rate funding

The Schools and Libraries Division (SLD) of the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) administers the E-Rate program, which assists schools and libraries in the United States with obtaining affordable telecommunications and Internet access. The reimbursement rate is based upon your number of students eligible for the free and reduced lunch program, and ranges from 20% to 85%. Not all Protected Harbor features are eligible; however, you can still cost-allocate across the eligible and ineligible services and features of Protected Harbor and receive E-Rate discounts for eligible hardware costs and licensing.

Secure Network Environment

In today’s digital focused environment, it is vital for schools and colleges to be able to provide a secure network infrastructure to both students and staff. Protected Harbor’s IT Support, if bundled with some of our managed security services will help deliver a secure base for the school to focus on achieving academic targets without having to worry about problems such as data loss, digital plagiarism and illegal downloads.

School IT Network Audit

Protected Harbor will begin by examining in some detail the current IT infrastructure of the school and explain in simple terms to a relevant member of staff the current state of the system and outline how an IT Support service from Protected Harbor will increase the efficiency and improve the learning environment for staff and students alike.
