Last year, school iPad programs were implemented across the United States. Administrators and teachers embraced the new technology tool to improve their students’ academic performance, but it wasn’t too long that they started to realize that there may be a problem – repair costs.
The Cost of a School iPad Program
School budgets are often under scrutiny. Teachers want more pay, administrators want more pay, students need newer computers, newer books, and now tablets. A school in Wisconsin spent $850,000 on iPads last year to supply 1,000 students with one. It wasn’t too long that they started to see cracked iPad screens. With iPad screen repairs costing hundreds of dollars through Apple Care and over $250 through third party repair shops, schools like the one in Wisconsin started to get nervous that they might have been over their heads.
While some schools have required parents pay for iPad insurance, not every parent is financial able to do this, which has caused some students not to have a device. This is simply not fair for the student. No student should have to miss using a valuable learning tool because they are not able to afford it. That’s why iResQ wants to help.
