School districts discover that the secret to implement a good laptop program is to find a good partner. This article features educational partnerships that provide tools and support districts need to roll out successful laptop programs. At Cincinnati Country Day School district administrators joined with Toshiba and a solution provider to provide good deals for parents. At Catskill Central School District (NY), school officials teamed up with a local vendor IBM to lease equipment that can be refreshed whenever the hardware becomes antiquated. What makes these partnerships work is not exclusively good technology, but a combination of good technology and great service. Joe Hofmeister, technology director at Cincinnati Country Day School, says this one-two punch is essential to any successful partnership, and can be the difference between a revolutionary endeavor and a colossal waste of money and time.
