District purchases refurbished MacBooks from Mac to School
(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) – Today, there are more than a hundred additional MacBooks in the hands of students in Georgia’s Union County School System (UCSS), and the district has budget to spare. As is the case with any district, UCSS Technology department set out to find creative ways to obtain more high quality ed-tech devices for their five campuses, without putting an additional burden on their budget,
“The more we looked, the less we found that fit both our budgetary and educational needs, ” said Bill Driskell, Director of Technology at Union County School System.
During their search, the tech team found the refurbished MacBooks offered by Mac to School to be their best option, both for students and their budget. After an extensive evaluation period, Driskell and his team made an initial purchase of 117 MacBooks, nearly double the number of new machines for the same price.
