Thomas Starr King Middle School purchased 35 MacBooks and 40 iMacs from Mac to School, K-12’s leading provider of refurbished Apple devices.

“Thomas Starr King is one of the highest performing middle schools in the greater Los Angeles area. To maintain the bar we have set so high, it is imperative our students have access to the highest quality technology available,” comments Mark Naulls, principal at Thomas Starr King.

 Repair? Refresh? Recycle? Replace?
What districts need to know when hardware begins to break down

Featured in DA Magazine. By: Monica Rhor

Screen Shot 2014-02-24 at 9.03.44 AMJust five years ago, Chawanakee USD, a small rural district nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains in northern California, and the North Kansas City School District, a suburban district located just north of Kansas City, Mo., were at the starting lines of the digital revolution.The two districts were about to launch 1- to-1 laptop programs. For Chawanakee, that meant buying new MacBooks for the 280 students in the district’s only high school. For North Kansas City, that meant leasing 7-inch HP mini laptops for its 6,000 high school students.

But that was just phase one. About three years in, both Chawanakee and North Kansas City wrestled with a quandary that all 1-to-1 programs eventually face: What to do when devices become outdated or need repairs.

There are several options. Districts can spring for the repairs or replacement parts. They can charge parents fees to cover insurance or damage. They can choose a leasing agreement that allows for new devices every few years. They can replace their entire inventory with the latest model. Or they can opt to buy refurbished devices when the old ones cycle out after three to five years.

Mac to School’s buyback program got a shout out in the February issue of The Gaggler, Gaggle’s newsletter.

“We love meeting so many of you at trade shows and events around the country. Earlier this month during TCEA, we met a great, young company that can help you make money on your old computer equipment. If you have computers that are no longer being used, take a look at Mac to School and see if they can help.

Mac to School purchases used Macs and iPads directly from schools like yours. Why just leave old equipment in storage, or pay to dispose of them yourself? Get free pickup, free shipping and the most money paid for your school’s used Macs. ”

Texas School District Saves Thousands on Refurbished Apple Products

Getting more mileage out of tech budgets a priority in TX Schools

 Featured in eSchool News

(TRINITY, Texas) – When balancing the budget of an entire school district, expensive new technology is often among the first to be cut.  But administrators at one Texas district have found an option to put more high-quality technology in their students’ hands, using a fraction of their previous budget.

 

Trinity Independent School District purchased dozens of refurbished Apple products, including MacBooks and AC adapters, from Mac to School, K12’s leading provider of refurbished Apple devices.

 

Buying refurbished products from Mac to School allowed us to give our teachers and students access to the best technology available while staying within our budget,” said Barry Coleman, the district’s director of technology.  “We’ve placed multiple orders with Mac to School and have been thrilled with the results every time.”

Four Must-Have Tools for Superintendents

Article featured in eSchool News

By Bob Nelson
January 10, 2014

Bob Nelson, superintendent of schools in Chawanakee Unified School District, shares four must-have tools for superintendents.

superintendents-social-media-toolsI am the Superintendent of the Chawanakee Unified School District, which is the home of Minarets High, a three-time Apple Distinguished School designee, and a rural, mountain area district in which we have one-to-one technology in grades 4 and above. Some of the tech tools I use the most include:

Facebook and Twitter

We use social media extensively, both as administrators and with our students, in order to promote the projects students are doing and to give our community timely information on the things happening throughout our district.

All of our high school students have full access to social media, and we work diligently with them on creating a digital footprint that they can be proud of, and that can bring them deserved recognition. As a superintendent, too, it gives me a direct communication channel to people all throughout our system, and they come to know me at a deeper, more connected level.

Evernote

I love being able to take notes on my laptop, phone, or iPad and have them all sync up in a single digital file. Imagine having all of the notes you have taken in any meeting you have attended, available to you all the time. That is the power of Evernote.

Instagram

Used in conjunction with social media, Instagram is every school administrator’s answer to being able to provide immediate positive recognition for the great things that are happening. People often say that they can’t find the time to recognize the good that is occurring or lament, “If people only knew what was happening.” Now, with Instagram, everybody can, and does, know in live time.

Mac to School

Trying to manage having an entire district’s one-to-one program can be incredibly costly, and if the types of machines that students are using differ widely, instructional difficulties can occur as well. Mac to School is an affordable solution with top quality refurbished machines that allow us to stay current and insure that every one of the kids in our program has a top quality experience. Folks can be hard on a daily machine, too — the price point of the refurbished machines allows us to provide necessary replacements at a fraction of the cost.
