Press Release: CPS Elementary School Saves More Than 50 Percent with Refurbished Technology
Spencer Technology Academy gets creative with tech budget, puts more high-quality devices in the hands of students
(CHICAGO) April 29, 2014 – 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 found what they were looking for at Mac to School, K-12’s leading 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 choosing to work 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.”
“It is our top priority to provide schools and districts like Spencer Technology Academy with high-quality EdTech at an affordable price,” said Robert Baker, Mac to School’s co-founder and president. “We look forward to supporting Spencer Technology Academy and other innovative schools like them in the future.”
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.
