Technology is so important at one Chicago Public School that it’s built right into their name: Spencer Technology Academy. When the elementary school made the decision to update their computer labs, leadership set out to find the best possible options, both for their budget and their students. They chose Mac to School, provider of refurbished Apple devices.
“At our school, it is imperative that students have access to high quality educational technology to facilitate their learning. In our search to find the best possible solution, we found that Mac to School was able to provide the service and quality we needed while staying well within our budget,” said Tracey Howse, the school’s lead technology teacher. “We were so impressed with the quality of their products and outstanding customer service that we have placed multiple orders with them since.”
By working with Mac to School to update their labs, the school was able to save more 50 percent on their purchase than if they had gone directly to Apple.
Spencer Technology Academy is one of five technology academies within Chicago Public Schools. The elementary school’s vision is to use technology as “a driving force to move students beyond their immediate.”
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.
