TIES to Offer Rebate Program to Member Schools Who Purchase YourTeacher’s Algebra 1 and Geometry iBooks Textbooks from Apple’s iBookstore

September 5, 2012 Houston, TX- YourTeacher (www.yourteacher.com), a leading digital publisher of iBooks textbooks for the K-12 market, is thrilled to announce a partnership with TIES (Technology and Information Education Services), a joint cooperative owned by 47 school districts in Minnesota.

TIES is a Minnesota education technology collaborative that brings together technology and education to create comprehensive, cutting-edge solutions for school administrators, educators and students. TIES member districts represent over 500 Minnesota schools with approximately 275,000 students.

For the 2012-13 school year, districts in Minnesota who purchase YourTeacher’s iBooks textbooks from the Apple iBookstore as part of the TIES-YourTeacher program will receive a 10% rebate. This rebate will provide districts with additional savings beyond the already reduced price of YourTeacher’s iBooks textbooks as compared to traditional textbooks. According to Greg Bartley, Co-Director of the Learning and Technology Department at TIES, “We are always looking for innovative products which we can offer to member schools here in Minnesota. As an early leader in iPad adoptions, our member schools are hungry for content to bring out the power of their newly purchased iPads. YourTeacher’s iBooks textbooks with a math teacher built-in are a great way for our member schools to demonstrate the effectiveness of iPad adoption. The fact that they are about half of the price of traditional textbooks is a great benefit as well.”

“TIES is a leader in providing cutting edge technology and software solutions to schools in Minnesota,” states Charlie Hermes, CEO and Co-Founder of YourTeacher. “We are honored that they see the value in our ‘textbook with a teacher inside’ approach and are going to offer rebates to our iBooks textbooks to schools throughout Minnesota. Together, we can truly unlock the power of iPads while saving districts hundreds of thousands of dollars in textbook expenses.”
