Prince George’s County Public Schools is the 18th largest school system in the U.S., with 134,000 students and 16,000 full time employees, including 10,000 teachers. With one laptop for every teacher and a 5:1 student to computer ratio, Prince George’s has nearly 40,000 computers spread over 209 schools. Prior to 2004, asset management and software license counts were done by hand, and IT techs spent about 8 days a year distributing laptops to teaching staff.
