Immigrant Parents and Student Learning

Learn their needs, offer adult courses, and help them acclimate to a new community.
By Audra Nissen Boyer

Many studies have documented the benefits of parent involvement in learning. Students whose parents are involved in their schooling tend to have better academic performance and fewer behavioral problems, and are more likely to graduate from high school.

Is your tech ready to rock in the New Year? Follow this simple checklist and find out

checlist-techIt’s hard to believe, but 2015 is already upon us. For technology directors and IT personnel, that means a whole new year of fires to put out, devices to fix and networks to repair.

Amid all the chaos, it can be easy to let general maintenance slip under your radar. But in my years as a tech director for districts around California, I realized that staying on top of the small things helped me be more prepared to handle big issues as they arose.

So I came up with five essential “tech checks” to complete at the beginning of each calendar year, and I hope they’ll be as helpful to you as they were to me.

Mac to School donates 15 MacBooks to Mankato Area Public Schools

December 17, 2014

From an article in the Mankato Times

MANKATO, MINN. – To support adult family literacy and student learning in the district, Mac to School has donated 15 certified MacBooks to Mankato Area Public Schools.

Mac to School’s generous donation – estimated at $10,000 – increases the ability for students to have technology to learn at home.

Mac to School, a leading provider of K-12 certified Apple technology, selected Mankato Area Public Schools for the donation through its national Give Mac program. The company evaluates candidates for donations based on their financial need and their intended purpose for the technology.  

“When we heard Mac to School had selected Mankato Area Public Schools, we were pleased because access to technology enables parents to help their children learn,” said Audra Nissen Boyer, the district’s director of community education. “It’s rare to receive such a generous vendor donation and we’re grateful because it helps families who otherwise could not afford a computer of their own.”

Families who receive the computers will support their learning in family literacy.  Specifically, they will learn how to utilize the district’s web-based book series—supported through a local partnership with Capstone Publishing.  Parents will ultimately meet a goal of being able to read books to their children.

“In a 21st-century learning environment, we know how important it is for students to have access to technology,” said Robert Baker, the co-founder and chief marketing officer of Mac to School. “It’s truly an honor to partner with Mankato Area Public Schools to put MacBooks in the hands of their new arrivals.”

Mac to School Ramps up Tech Buyback Program

November 3, 2014

Article featured in THE Journal:

Mac to School, a company that sells refurbished and recertified Apple devices to schools, is beefing up its buyback program, aiming to purchase $10 million worth of used technology from schools in 2015.

“Mac to School frequently works with districts that are looking to make room in their budgets to purchase newer ed tech — for example, selling iPad 2s to finance the purchase of iPad Airs,” according to a news release. “By selling the older assets back to Mac to School, districts can lessen the financial impact of a big ed tech purchase.”

Devices that the company decides are too old to resell are given to schools through its Give Mac program.

“Our mission is to provide a high-quality, low cost recertified Apple device option for districts across the country,” said Robert Baker, co-founder and chief marketing officer at Mac to School, in a prepared statement. In order to do that, we partner with schools and districts to purchase their older devices, providing them with additional funds to use as they see fit. It is a priority to keep these devices in education. Once purchased, they are recertified and offered to those looking for more Apple devices at a lower cost.”
