ROUND ROCK, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dell announced today that Troup County School System has deployed Dell Latitude e5530 laptops, Latitude 6430 ultrabooks and Optiplex 3010 desktop computers across all 20 of its schools. Troup County School System switched to Dell from their long-time commitment to HP in order to provide an increased amount of access to their nearly 13,000 students. Dell brought an affordable, high-performing mix of solutions to maximize their digital learning and teaching needs.
“Windows PCs have always been the most affordable, manageable and productive tools for our students to use,” said Josh Moneypenny, Technology Director of Troup County School System. “Dell’s combination of high-performance computers at an affordable price helps us provide more of our students and teachers the tools they need to make teaching and learning more interactive and engaging.”
Dell is partnering with its PartnerDirect Partner of the Year, CORE ATG, to provide Troup County School System with a range of services, such as digital etching, asset tagging and offsite disposal of all cardboard and plastic shipping and packaging material. CORE ATG will also be providing asset recovery services that include removal of all existing electronic equipment, data wiping hard drives in accordance with Department of Defense standards and responsibly disposing of electronic waste with a local certified specialist.
The new computers will help Troup County School System align with the Common Core Standards, a mandate that aims to prepare students for the demands of the 21st Century workforce, adopted by the state of Georgia. Online collaboration is an essential part of aligning with the standards and the new devices provide students and teachers a gateway to the tools, professional development, common assessments and other instructional materials available on the internet.
Troup County School System leveraged Microsoft Shape the Future program which lowered the cost of the computers’ software and operating systems to make it possible to increase the number of computers deployed on campus and improve access to digital learning.
