With a few simple clicks, educators can connect their students with the content they need for academic success.
 
Subscriptions for Capstone Connect are usually funded through the district or school curriculum office.  The list price is $8,399 per school but Capstone has a special promotional price of $5,999 going on through July 31.  RILINK may be able to get special pricing based on the number of schools participating. The subscription cost will be reduced by $2.00 per Capstone Interactive eBooks owned and by any time left on your current PebbleGo subscription.  For example, if a school has Animals and Science currently for $799 through 12/31/2021 and they want a quote for Connect to start 08/01/2021, the credit for their PebbleGo subscription would be 5 months out of 12 (the time between when Connect would be implemented through their current renewal date 08/01/2021-12/31/2021) times the price paid, that is (5/12) * $799 = $332.92 off the Connect subscription.
