LocknCharge Now Responsible for Charging, Storing and Deploying Over One Million Devices

MADISON, Wis. (August, 23, 2016) - As educators aim to increase the use of devices in the classroom this upcoming school year, LocknCharge, provider of solutions that increase accessibility and usability of technology, celebrates a milestone of storing, charging and deploying over one million devices. Through their variety of basket-based mobile deployment carts, LocknCharge has helped enable 1:1 learning while saving teachers an average of an hour a week in school districts such as the Coachella Valley Unified School District (CVUSD). When CVUSD, a district with 19,500 students in 22 schools that cover an area in Thermal, Ca. as large as Rhode Island, realized that only 16 percent of their students that went on to college graduated, they looked for ways to change their culture in order to better prepare their students for the 21st century. Though CVUSD is one of the poorest school districts in the country, superintendent Dr. Darryl Adams set out to become the first school district to provide all P-12 students and teachers with Apple iPads. The district realized that they also needed a solution to manage over 20,000 devices. With the help of LocknCharge’s EVO 40 cart, CVUSD has accomplished the goals of its 1:1 program with the seamless introduction of the tablets into every classroom.

“Dr. Darryl Adams and his staff had a bold vision to become the first school district in the country to have an iPad for every student and teacher,” said Steve Ledbetter, president of North America for LocknCharge. “Their steadfast dedication has made that dream a reality. We are proud to play a role in helping protect, charge and distribute over one million devices to school districts such as CVUSD.”

After the incorporation of over 20,000 devices into his schools, the U.S. Department of Education honored Dr. Adams as one of the top 100 most innovative superintendents in the country at President Obama’s Next Generation High School Summit.

Putnam City Schools Designs Charging Station with LocknCharge

MADISON, Wis. (Aug. 17, 2017) – To help refresh their digital learning initiatives, leaders at Putnam City Schools in Oklahoma collaborated with LocknCharge to design and release the Putnam 16 Charging Station. The school district will install 500 charging stations for the 2017-18 school year. “Our district is in the process of creating our own digital curriculum, so students will increasingly use mobile devices as their textbooks. We didn’t find any stations that fit our needs for this initiative, so we approached LocknCharge about creating a custom solution,” said Charri Stratton, director of instructional technology at Putnam City Schools. “We wanted a charging station that didn’t take up classroom space and allowed teachers to look and easily see if all the iPads were put away and charging. LocknCharge provided that.” The Putnam 16 Charging Station charges, stores and secures 16 iPads. The pre-wired station comes with an external charging status display and a built-in mechanical combination lock. The school district plans on putting 400 stations in their middle schools and 100 in various classrooms that have a 1:1 program.
