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.
