It with great pleasure I write this letter of recommendation for Communications by Design and Sara Easter. Beginning in the school year 2003, I was assigned the duties of Interim Technology Director at Caledonia Community Schools. I was also serving as the High School Assistant Principal. As Interim Technology Director, I was ultimately responsible for devising and carrying out a 5 million dollar technology bond project throughout the district. This also included the construction of a new 31 million dollar high school.
Sara Easter and CBD were selected as our technology consultants. I can tell you without any reservation that the vision for our district and the direction we have taken was a direct result of Sara’s foresight, knowledge, and dedication to our project. Sara is a great listener, visionary, diplomat, and above all else carries through with her responsibilities in a timely and professional manner.
Communications By Design helped us through an RFP for our WAN and Telco Contracts and saved us a considerable amount of money. They have worked with us in different capacities, including working on our behalf as project manager for PBX upgrades. I would highly recommend them as a consulting partner.
CBD’s knowledge of RFP and bid procedures is hands-down the best I’ve worked with. I just went out to bid on networking electronics, an extremely involved and lengthy document. With everything else on my plate, I never would have gotten it done. Carl finished it inside a week. CBD has been a great technology partner for us.
The scope of work provided by Communications By Design included preliminary bond services including focus groups, development of a community survey and analysis. A process that helped foster the development of our culture as one that embraces technology and enhances instructional models within our district.
Sara and her company are just the kind of tech partner you want, to help shift mindsets from the little stuff to bigger opportunities technology brings to your class.I’ll never forget early in our technology input and pilot phase with CBD. Some teachers and a few IT folks were all sort-of tiptoeing around the selection of devices Sara brought in for trial. The questions were all focused on what do we do if it breaks? What happens if a kid drops it? That day, Sara just tossed the device on the floor, shocking us all. She then picked it up and nonchalantly asked: What if?
