Faculty, Staff and Students can purchase computers at reduced state prices.
Teachers, Staff and Parents,
The state negotiated with the vendors to lower their prices so that we could get the most from this state money. The vendors lowered their prices – up to 50% off retail and around 25% of the prices schools were paying. Part of this initiative was to also allow students, teachers and staff to purchase from our vendors. This has happened! Below is the information about each of the vendors and how students/parents, faculty and staff can purchase from these vendors. Any questions need to go to the vendors and not your school.
The KETS contract, for IDUs (Instructional Device Upgrade), has been released for Students, Staff, and Teachers to purchase from. The link or contact information to purchase from each vendor is:
Note: For most computer uses, the standard configuration of the IDU (Pre-selected processor, 1GB of RAM, 80gb HDD; Pre-selected Video Card and Sound Card) will work. You can upgrade any of these items within the web site. You can also, purchase any of the other workstations; for example the KETS Level 1(Dell site). Also, it is recommended that Microsoft Office be purchased at the time of the order.
