Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) IT director John DeMillion recently gave MacCentral information of importance to K-12 educators in PA. “The Apple K-12 situation in Pennsylvania is in a special situation this year, because Apple is not on the normal statewide bid for education,” DeMillion explained.
Accordingly, the CCIU has produced the statewide bid of Apple for this calendar year, he said. “We’re trying to get the word out to educators (since otherwise the impression tends to be that Apple educational purchases are not available in PA, or that they’ve gone out of business, etc).”
