We are dedicated to providing schools with the absolute best technology for their budget. Our team will guide you through the many choices available when choosing a software licensing, network management or digital learning solution. When it comes to technology, our passion and commitment to the academic procurement process is unmatched.
The use of technology in education has grown exponentially in the past decade. This not only requires schools to implement more hardware in their classrooms, but also make sure they have strong network and security measures in place for all of this new technology. Even with the growth of new technology in education, some budgets have not yet expanded to adequately cover the costs. ScholarBuys provides a solution to schools to help stretch their budget and increase purchasing power. In this post, we will cover some of the costs schools are facing now with technology, and how leasing provides a viable solution to this cost.
$1Buy Out: With a $1 Buyout Purchase Option you own the equipment after your finance term is up. Once the leasing period is over, you buy out the equipment for $1. This is the best option if you are sure you would like to own the equipment and use it for a long time after the finance term, but want to pay for it in increments. If you want to keep your technology updated and get new products every few years, this is not the option for you.
Fair Market Value: A Fair Market Value Lease gives you the ability to purchase the product at any time at fair market value. This is a good option if you want to test out the technology and basically rent it before you purchase. You can stop leasing and return the equipment at any time, continue leasing, or purchase it at fair market value. This option offers lower monthly payments than loans for lease-to-own financing.
EANS (Emergency Assistance to Nonpublic Schools) is $2.75 billion allocated to nonpublic elementary and secondary schools as part of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act. EANS I funding is prioritized to those non-public schools that enroll low-income students and are most impacted by COVID-19. There is a second round of an additional $2.75 billion in funding that was recently approved and should be available in the coming future for non-public schools.

ScholarBuys Procurement Expertise
Chromebook devices come in all kinds of different models. ScholarBuys will guide you through the various offerings available to your school and find the perfect Chromebook solution to fit your needs. A standard bundle includes 30 Chromebooks, 30 Google Admin licenses, 30 content filtering licenses, and a charging cart. You also have the ability to customize the bundle to best fit the needs of your current project.
A Chromebook Refresh is when you remove your current Chromebooks from use and start fresh with a new fleet of devices. This ensures that your students are using the latest technology and also removes any broken or damaged devices from use. Our team of Academic Technology Experts at ScholarBuys can walk you through the Chromebook Refresh process. We have a Buyback Program to help you sell back old devices that you are no longer using. We also have expert knowledge in current education devices on the market that would be best for your school.
The process is simple! Let us know how many of the Chromebooks you have and we will send you a quote for how much they are worth. If you choose to have them purchased you get a shipping label, pack them up and send them in. Then, all data is wiped from the devices. As long as they still power on and have a non-cracked display, you will receive the quoted credit for the device. All quotes are valid for 30 days. Once all devices are processed you will receive a check in the mail for your earnings!
