Enrollment for Educational Solutions (EES)

The Enrollment for Educational Solutions or EES Licensing program is Microsoft’s latest licensing program available as an alternative to the Schools and Campus Agreement.

Reference: Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions Program Guide

Under this agreement you can license a single school, multiple schools or an entire school system, such as a local authority. You count your Full-Time Equivalent staff once per year, so you don't have to track every single computer in your establishment. Full time equivalent are staff who work more than 200 hours per year in your school (this equates to around five hours a week during term time). There is no need to include staff members (e.g. maintenance, grounds keeping, and cafeteria staff) or volunteers (e.g. parent helpers) who do not use a computer in the school.

Key benefits of this programme include:

  • Counting FTE staff once per year covers all staff and shared-use computers
  • One annual payment for all software at academic prices
  • Access to the most current version of licensed software
  • Ability to downgrade to an earlier version of software
  • Broad product selection available in all languages
  • Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh platform
  • Optional inclusion of computers exclusively dedicated to one student, and students' own home computers
