Mac to School’s missions is to provide the best technology to as many students as possible. Since 2012, Mac to School has bought and sold Apple devices to K-12 schools in all 50 states, but this year we wanted to do more. We made a concerted effort to help prepare our local youth for their future careers.

This summer alone, Mac to School has hired over 60 high school and college students to work over their summer vacations. These students have earned valuable work experience, been given the opportunity to gives back to students like themselves, and provided an Apple device at a steep discount to further assist with their studies. The feedback we have received from the Mac to School employees and students has been that the program was a resounding success and one we will continue next year. Thanks again to all of our Summer 2016 team!

Use this checklist to help take stock of equipment and software

When I was an ed-tech director for several California school districts, I was too busy responding to problems and meeting teachers’ instructional needs to do much IT planning and assessing during the school year.
