Parma City Buyback



Parma City Schools was planning a summer refresh and migration of approximately 6,000 Mac’s and iPad’s. Dan Gedeon, End User Support Supervisor, knew that he needed the assistance of a highly qualified team to help make the transition go smoothly. In order to help fund the new equipment Parma needed to maximize the sale of their used 4,400 MacBook Air’s, 1,500 iPad Mini’s and 300 iPad 4’s.

“After reaching out to and hearing back from multiple companies, Tech to School was able to offer Parma City Schools the best buyback price by a considerable margin. Throughout the entire process Cary Smith, Director of Purchasing, was in constant contact ensuring everything was running smoothly and fitting to our timeline. Once the dust settled, a very large project was completed in a short time without issue thanks to Tech to School!”

Midway ISD



Midway ISD refreshed a large fleet of iPads. They have a one-to-one implementation in nearly all grades and well over 10,000 deployed devices. This was the first large-scale equipment replacement since the initiation of the program. Some of the early considerations involved the logistics process and the personnel that would be required to pack and remove the equipment given the unique facility requirements. Tech to School was able to coordinate internal resources with external labor and logistics partners to effect an efficient and organized removal of equipment that satisfied all customer requirements.

“When you are placing an order for school issued devices for every student in your school, the task can seem overwhelming and daunting! Not with Tech to School. We researched different devices and companies for months, trying to decide what was best for our school. One phone call to Tech to School, and all of my questions were answered.  I felt confident moving forward and purchasing 78 MacBooks from them. Not only were they able to give me specs and statistics on longevity of devices, they also offered a warranty.  Over the last several years, I have had very few issues with all of the devices we have purchased from Tech to School, but, what I can tell you is that the instant I detected a problem of any sort, Bonny and her team of people worked to make it right.  I have never gone without a device, or had to suffer with a lemon.  Tech to School takes the cake with customer service.  The are truly outstanding.”

Chicago School Saves 50% on Macs

Featured in SchoolCIO 

Technology is so important at one Chicago Public School that it’s built right into their name: Spencer Technology Academy. When the elementary school made the decision to update their computer labs, leadership set out to find the best possible options, both for their budget and their students. They chose Mac to School, provider of refurbished Apple devices.

“At our school, it is imperative that students have access to high quality educational technology to facilitate their learning. In our search to find the best possible solution, we found that Mac to School was able to provide the service and quality we needed while staying well within our budget,” said Tracey Howse, the school’s lead technology teacher. “We were so impressed with the quality of their products and outstanding customer service that we have placed multiple orders with them since.”

By working with Mac to School to update their labs, the school was able to save more 50 percent on their purchase than if they had gone directly to Apple.

Spencer Technology Academy is one of five technology academies within Chicago Public Schools. The elementary school’s vision is to use technology as “a driving force to move students beyond their immediate.”

In addition to providing school districts with an option for purchasing refurbished computers, Mac to School also offers to purchase Apple products from districts that are looking to upgrade or make room in their budget for new computers.
