What is the purpose of the EANS Grant Program?

The purpose of the EANS Grant Program is to provide services and assistance to eligible private schools to address educational disruptions caused by COVID-19. Non-profit private schools are eligible to apply for funding under EANS provided that the school was in existence prior to March 13, 2020. EANS funding can be used for sanitization, personal protective equipment, COVID testing, connectivity, and educational technology (including hardware, software, connectivity, assistive technology, and adaptive equipment)

What is ClassWallet?

The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) is pleased to use ClassWallet, an online funds management platform, to streamline the management of the EANS grant program. Once your ClassWallet balance reflects the EANS funds, you can link your bank account and submit receipts for a direct reimbursement or issue payments to registered service providers like us.

Hear how IT for Education has helped these South Florida schools modernize and enhance their learning environments

As the technology director of a small, but very technologically progressive PK-8 school, I highly recommend Julio Lopez and his very qualified team of systems engineers at IT for Education. I have had the pleasure of working with Julio throughout the last 20 years. His loyalty and dedication have contributed to making our business relationship both effortless and pleasant. His team’s knowledge and expertise coupled with their willingness to go the extra mile in fulfilling my requests and timelines have made IT for Education the go-to expert school for our most significant projects. They always take the time to discuss my concerns, provide solutions and respond to my questions. In many instances, they have been my lifesavers, resolving emergency situations during non-business hours to ensure that we are up and running during school hours.

The IT for Education staff is without a doubt the hardest working group of techs that I have encountered. We recently embarked on several technology initiatives that have been planned and implemented in a professional and timely fashion. IT for Education supported us through the entire e-Rate process. As a result, we were able to use all the funding received and create a plan for the present and the future. With the help of IT for Education, we were able to install all new computers in our computer lab, enhance our server productivity, install software to better manage and utilize our iPad devices, and establish new policies and procedures to increase student learning and safety.

I have worked with Julio Lopez and the IT for Education team for almost four years now and they are invaluable in supporting our educational technology initiative at St. Coleman. We were fortunate to have a technology growth spurt with the addition of over 600 iPads and MacBooks to our campus five years ago but experienced some difficult growing pains along the way that exceeded our resources and experience. From infrastructure upgrades and Apple deployment solutions to daily troubleshooting, repairs, and staffing our IT Help Desk - Julio, Angel, and Mike helped us get the job done with a smile and continue to do so every day. SCS is extremely fortunate to have a partnership with a hard-working school that is not only knowledgeable about technology but also understands its applications in education.
