Mesa Public Schools Prioritizes Technology
Technology plays a starring role at Mesa Public Schools, where all of its high school students and a majority of its middle schoolers have been using 1:1 devices for the last couple of years. The spread of the coronavirus pandemic accelerated the district’s intent to get school-issued mobile devices into the hands of all their students. By the start of the 2020-2021 school year, even its pre-kindergarten students were learning remotely.
Pairing every student to a device within a short amount of time was a major feat for the district. Mesa Public Schools’ journey to accelerate technology adoption began just over 10 years ago when a partnership with Trox was formed. According to Mitchell, the district relies heavily on the expertise of Trox, a leading provider of education and collaboration solutions and services. With one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolios, Trox provides technology and services used daily by more than 20 million students in hundreds of thousands of K-12 schools and higher-education institutions across the U.S. and Canada.
