Troup County School System has deployed Dell Latitude e5530 laptops, Latitude 6430 ultrabooks and Optiplex 3010 desktop computers across all 20 of its schools.

“Windows PCs have always been the most affordable, manageable and productive tools for our students to use,” said Josh Moneypenny, Technology Director of Troup County School System. “Dell’s combination of high-performance computers at an affordable price helps us provide more of our students and teachers the tools they need to make teaching and learning more interactive and engaging.”

Dell is partnering with its PartnerDirect Partner of the Year, CORE ATG, to provide Troup County School System with a range of services, such as digital etching, asset tagging and offsite disposal of all cardboard and plastic shipping and packaging material. CORE ATG will also be providing asset recovery services that include removal of all existing electronic equipment, data wiping hard drives in accordance with Department of Defense standards and responsibly disposing of electronic waste with a local certified specialist.

Troup County School System leveraged Microsoft Shape the Future program to lower the cost of the computers’ software and operating systems and increase the number of computers deployed on campus.
