Services – ECA

Whether you are in need of basic school supplies, engaging materials for hands-on activities or printed worksheets to support virtual learning, ECA can help. We currently offer a variety of services to meet the needs of your curriculum and students and can support kits for all subject areas and grade levels.

We have expanded our services during the COVID-19 pandemic to make sure teachers have the supplies and resources they need to continue providing high-quality instruction to their students, whether that’s in-person learning or online.

Subject Area Kits

While science is our sweet spot, we can create kits for all subjects and grade levels. Our kits are customized based on curriculum, unit, and lesson to make sure you get everything needed for the lesson. We’re adding new items to our inventory all the time to support new subject areas.

School Essentials Pack

Back-to-school is different this year, and our customizable School Essentials Pack provides students with the school supplies they need. The Packs are a great solution for schools starting the year with remote learning, as they ensure every student has access to the same materials and supplies.

Printed Student Packets

Our team can design, print and distribute printed packets for your students. The packets are perfect for schools in remote environments but will also allow for a quick and efficient transition for schools that are forced to switch from face-to-face to remote.

Live Materials

No more coupons! If you need live material for your lessons, we prep, deliver and pick up on a pre-determined schedule based on the districts’ kit use plan.

We offer a variety of servicing options, including full service, refill service and live material service. Our systems and staff are uniquely positioned to assemble, pack and deliver the kits you need for your students.
