Texas district to be able to store 54,000 mobile devices using over 1,800 LocknCharge carts
Research conducted by Project Tomorrow indicates that mobile devices increase student engagement, student-teacher communications and access to course materials outside of the classroom. To reap these benefits, Arlington Independent School District (AISD) in Texas is introducing more than 1,800 Carrier 30 Carts from LocknCharge to have the capacity to hold more than 54,000 Chromebooks. With these carts, AISD staff can store, charge and protect the mobile devices—making it easier to implement digital learning initiatives.
Using a $663.1 million bond package, AISD is providing Chromebooks to its 76 schools with the goal of having a Carrier 30 cart for every two classrooms.
Each cart holds 30 devices that will be used to accelerate web-based learning environments, address online testing needs and boost student performance.
“The introduction of Chromebooks into the learning process has been a cost effective way for our learners to obtain access to resources that enhance their overall learning experience. It has also provided an effective solution to address online testing needs across a system as large as Arlington ISD,” said Chad Branum, assistant superintendent for technology at AISD. “The district is excited to partner with LocknCharge to provide flexibility within the instructional environment by being able to easily move devices around, guarantee that all devices are being charged efficiently and simplify the distribution of devices using the baskets in the carts.”
AISD has 63,000 students, 8,500 staff members and is the 11th largest school district in Texas.
“Educators at AISD are taking new, exciting steps to provide students with the latest classroom technology as a vehicle to initiate mobile learning,” said James Symons, CEO for LocknCharge. “Our LocknCharge mobile device carts will make this process smoother for teachers and students across the district, and will protect, charge and help distribute their devices for years to come.”
The universal Carrier 30 Carts feature a compact design, single soft-closing sliding lid, secure two-point locking system and simultaneously charge up to 30 devices. To learn more, visit https://www.lockncharge.com/products/carrier-30-cart.

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.
“LocknCharge has been a great partner for us,” said Dr. Adams. “They listen to us, they’ve made adjustments to their products for us and they’ve been very supportive in responding to us. Their product is key to us protecting our investment in our technological devices.”
“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.
LocknCharge is the leading global manufacturer and supplier of mobile deployment solutions with headquarters in Australia, USA and Europe. With over 300 million tablets sold, LocknCharge offers a solution to the growing problem of physically managing the deployment of mobile devices in classrooms around the world.

Top Shelf Cart
Getting a classroom’s worth of notebooks or tablets from A to B is no trivial matter, but LocknCharge’s iC 30 Cart can make it one of the easiest parts of the school day. Sturdy, well-made and secure, the cart can put fully-charged computers into any classroom.
At 36.6- by 29.0- by 26.4-inches and weighing a hefty 158-pounds, the iC 30 is built like a tank and has a rugged white enamel finish. In fact, it’s so well made that it should outlast several generations of the computers that it will house.
Happily, the cart’s top slides sideways to create a 24- by 25.5-inch worktop that works well for handing out systems or for holding a large monitor. The cart’s inside has a large central storage area.
