Press Release: Extron Surpasses $7.5 Million Mark in Classroom AV System Grants to US Schools
Anaheim, California (June 10, 2014) – Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the continuation of our popular Classroom Technology Grant Programs for the seventh straight year. Through this program, Extron has granted more than $7.5 million worth of PoleVault, WallVault, and VoiceLift Systems to US school districts. Over 1,200 classrooms have received instructional technology that enables district technology leaders, administrators, and instructors to evaluate and define audiovisual system standards for their classrooms. The main goal of the Extron grant program is to provide increased visibility and expanded access for K-12 classroom AV technology by supplying selected pilot classrooms with advanced audio/video solutions at no cost to the district. Each grant award includes installation of Extron classroom system technology, along with complete training.
“Our classroom AV systems are designed specifically to meet the needs of K-12 classrooms,” says Anthony Cortes, Director of Sales and Marketing, K-12 Classroom Systems for Extron. “With our grant programs, schools can introduce students and educators to technology that will boost students’ interest and achievement in the classroom, as well as prepare them for the future.”
Extron offers several grant programs for qualifying institutions. The Classroom Technology Grant awards complete classroom AV systems, while the GlobalViewer Enterprise Grant provides Extron’s AV system monitoring and resource management software. All equipment, installation, and training are provided free of charge, with no required commitment for future purchases. Extron backs each grant classroom with a 5-year warranty and industry-leading S3 support, which provides 24/7 telephone assistance and a nationwide network of specialists. In addition, grant recipients have access to the Extron K-12 Web site, which offers additional resources, including product information, manuals, white papers, how-to videos, case studies, and more.
