The New Jersey School Boards Association has partnered with Edge to expand the products offered through its Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) program. Under the new agreement, districts will be able to purchase Microsoft products through the Edge cooperative pricing system, which eliminates the need to undergo the competitive bidding process.
The Microsoft EES, offered through SHI International, is a simple, cost-effective way of procuring the tools schools need to prepare students for the modern workplace while empowering teachers to deliver 21st-century digital learning.
Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) provides:

Additional new benefits include:
