Announcement - MacBooks available for purchase

  • The Norman Public School District recently replaced student laptops, which allowed the district to continue providing high-performing devices for students while maximizing the buy-back rate for older devices. Diamond Assets purchased the older laptops from the district and has now provided an opportunity for community members to purchase them at a reduced rate. 

    Product Description

    The 13” MacBook Air (MMGG2LL/A) devices are “Grade A,” which means they are like-new laptops with very minimal wear and tear. They come in an out-of-the-box state, with no additional software installed aside from the base operating system, macOS X Mojave. Each device also comes with a MagSafe power adapter. A limited quantity is available.

    Why iTech?

    At Norman Public Schools, we know our students are tomorrow’s inventors, entrepreneurs and problem-solvers. It is our responsibility to meet their needs in their quest for knowledge and provide a level playing field for all students. To best prepare our students for what's ahead, we must adapt our instructional approach.

    Consider this: In the past, students attended school because that’s where information was found. Today, technology has made information accessible anytime, anywhere and offers vast educational resources for learners.

    That’s why we are investing more than $16 million in student-led technology and the infrastructure needed to support it. The iTech initiative will ensure students from all socioeconomic backgrounds have equitable access to the most sophisticated technology we can provide.

    The technological tools we implement will supplement curriculum, enhance student engagement and extend learning beyond the classroom. Students will have countless opportunities to demonstrate innovation, creativity and collaboration - key skills needed to thrive in any college or career environment.
