Mac to School Ramps Up Apple Device Buy-Back Program for K-12 School Districts

Leading recertified Apple provider earmarks $10M to buy back older Apple devices from K-12 in upcoming school year
Rather than letting old machines sit in the janitor’s closet gathering dust, hundreds of schools nationwide are choosing to sell those machines back to Mac to School, a leading provider of K-12 recertified Apple technology.

Over the past year, Mac to School has bought back millions of dollars worth of EdTech from schools, helping districts get some much-needed cash back in their pockets, seeing over $1M paid to schools through buybacks in August alone. The buy-back process is simple, quick and easy, once a quote is accepted, funds are immediately released to the institution selling the devices.

“Our mission is to provide a high-quality, low cost recertified Apple device option for districts across the country. In order to do that, we partner with schools and districts to purchase their older devices, providing them with additional funds to use as they see fit,” said Robert Baker, the co-founder and chief marketing officer of Mac to School. “It is a priority to keep these devices in education, once purchased, they are recertified and offered to those looking for more Apple devices at a lower cost.”

Mac to School frequently works with districts that are looking to make room in their budgets to purchase newer EdTech – for example, selling iPad 2s to finance the purchase of iPad Airs. By selling the older assets back to Mac to School, districts can lessen the financial impact of a big EdTech purchase.

In 2015, Mac to School is looking to buy back $10 million in inventory from schools. Devices that are bought back that Mac to School deems too old to sell back to schools are donated to local schools through their Give Mac Program.

“We hope to continue partnering with districts to find creative solutions to their budget dilemmas, whether that’s through buying back their old machines or helping them purchase recertified devices,” said Baker.
