Press Release: Florida School Saves Thousands on Refurbished Apple Products
(OKEECHOBEE, Fla.) Jan. 08, 2014 – With technology playing an increasingly vital role in every classroom, school and district administrators nationwide are looking for ways to stretch their budgets, getting more for less.
Today, students at one Florida school are using the highest quality technology tools on the market, and the administrators didn’t have to break the bank.
Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School purchased nearly 200 refurbished Apple devices, including MacBook Pros, iPads, and iMacs from Mac to School, K12’s leading provider of refurbished Apple devices.
“We knew we needed to upgrade our technology, but it just didn’t make fiscal sense,” said Shelley Brantley, the school’s IT director. “Mac to School gave us the opportunity to get many more devices than we could have imagined, allowing us to put the best technology tools available in the hands of our students at a much more reasonable cost. Our students and faculty put these devices to work as soon as school started this year.”
While the district could have paid more than $100,000 to buy new technology directly from Apple, Mac to School was able to save them 40 percent on purchasing refurbished technology.
“At Mac to School, we believe every student deserves access to high-quality EdTech, but we also understand that school budgets are tight,” said Robert Baker, Mac to School’s co-founder and president. “We started this company with stories like this one in mind, and we’re thrilled to hear that Florida schools are loving their refurbished technology, and putting them to good use in furthering students’ education.”
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.
