Getting more mileage out of tech budgets a priority in TX Schools

(TRINITY, Texas) Jan. 23, 2014 –When balancing the budget of an entire school district, expensive new technology is often among the first to be cut. But administrators at one Texas district have found an option to put more high-quality technology in their students’ hands, using a fraction of their previous budget.

Trinity Independent School District purchased dozens of refurbished Apple products, including MacBooks and AC adapters, from Mac to School, K12’s leading provider of refurbished Apple devices.

“Buying refurbished products from Mac to School allowed us to give our teachers and students access to the best technology available while staying within our budget,” said Barry Coleman, the district’s director of technology. “We’ve placed multiple orders with Mac to School and have been thrilled with the results every time.”

The tech department spent roughly $30,000 on these refurbished Mac’s, they could have spent and additional 40% for the very same number of machines had they bought them new.

“At Mac to School, we know how important technology is in today’s classroom, but many districts simply can’t afford to pay full price,” said Robert Baker, Mac to School’s co-founder and president. “We give educators and administrators the option to get more technology at a lower cost – without sacrificing quality or capability. It is our top priority to partner with districts like Trinity ISD, supporting their mission to get the best tools in the hands of their students.

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.
