“We knew we needed to upgrade our technology, but it just didn’t make fiscal sense,” said Shelley Brantley, the school’s IT director. “Mac to School gave us the opportunity to get many more devices than we could have imagined, allowing us to put the best technology tools available in the hands of our students at a much more reasonable cost. Our students and faculty put these devices to work as soon as school started this year.”
While the district could have paid more than $100,000 to buy new technology directly from Apple, Mac to School was able to save it 40 percent on purchasing refurbished technology.
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.
