EducationPlaza Adds Four States to Partnership Roster
State-specific K-12 Resource and Information Center Continues to Expand
Chatsworth, Calif., January 17, 2008 -- EducationPlaza, the first state-specific online resource for sourcing products and services for the K-12 market, is pleased to announce that Illinois, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania have joined the roster of states actively participating in this innovative purchasing program.
“We are very pleased that our strategic growth initiative has resulted in the rapid inclusion of these four key states in the EducationPlaza group,” said Michael Glover, co-founder of EducationPlaza. “This is great news for the local education community, as well as for our advertisers, who can now share information on their latest products and services with additional states and districts.”
By partnering with Superintendents and School Board Associations EducationPlaza offers local educators and administrators a one-stop marketplace. EducationPlaza’s searchable database simplifies the time-consuming and complicated procurement process, making it faster, easier and more cost-effective for administrators to purchase supplies.
In addition to cataloging thousands of vendors in participating states with products ranging from instructional software to handheld devices and printed materials, EducationPlaza, part of the 1105 Media Education Group, provides direct-link, searchable information, resources, lesson plans and teaching tools through its T.H.E.
