ECA Schedules Live Material.

  • No More Coupons: Live material deliveries are pre-scheduled to arrive when they are needed.

    for the entire school year. Delivery schedules are based on district pacing guides, and ECA accounts
    for vacation days.

    schools) to gather teacher names. This makes distribution of the live material easy and efficient for

Live Materials Arrive in Multiple Deliveries

  • Live Materials are Delivered to Match Teaching Schedule: Not all live materials are needed at the
    same time. Live material deliveries are timed to match when they are needed during an instructional
    time block. Some kits will have 2, 3 or 4 deliveries.
  • Delivery Email Notices: Two weeks prior to the start of teaching a science unit that requires live
    material, ECA emails teachers with the live material delivery schedule. The email contains the list of
    live items to be delivered, when they will be delivered and what lesson number the live material is first
