E-Rate Consulting and Management

“The Federal E-Rate program is vital to helping us meet the needs of our students, but it is complicated, time-consuming, and stressful to do without proper expertise. SERRC has helped us get the most for our students through excellent communication and timely meeting of all E-Rate deadlines. Given the nature, complexity, and consequences of not meeting established guidelines we are grateful that SERRC ensures our E-Rate funding and program compliance.”
– Eric Gebhart,
Superintendent
Nenana City School District
