Donation Standards

Donated technology equipment may serve as a valuable addition to a school's technology infrastructure, but please keep in mind that there is a "hidden cost" in accepting donated computers. This includes increased time for service, cost of spare parts, purchase of Windows and Office licenses and other factors.

Such donations may serve as an unfortunate drain on school and district staff and fiscal resources if they do not meet minimum standards or if they are not in good condition.

"Donated equipment" refers to equipment previously used by individuals or corporations. It does not refer to non-standard equipment purchased new for the purpose of donating to a school. All new equipment must meet district purchasing standards and should be purchased by the district possibly using donation funds.

To ensure that schools can benefit from donated equipment, it is important for all school sites and donors to follow the guidelines below.
 

Please note that there can be no expectation that donated equipment will be able to be repaired if it becomes inoperable.
