“Lincoln Elementary School District is a great example of how New Dimension Media is creating access to top-notch educational content for schools at all income-levels,” said Moira Heffernan, New Dimension Media’s Director of Instructional Technology for Illinois. “Through our innovative discount programs—such as the CCC!-Rate program, which is based on a school’s E-Rate—we were able to help the Lincoln Elementary School District enjoy a very significant reduction to the cost of adopting CCC! We believe that cost should not be a significant barrier to students having the cutting-edge, 21st Century classroom technology they need to grow and learn in a global classroom.”
