Welcome to the premiere (black tie optional) of the Lexicon quarterly AlwaysLearning Bulletin! Today, we take you through small district discounts, avoiding DOA batteries in Chromebooks, conference updates, and a bit more. Let’s dive in.

SMALL DISTRICT DISCOUNT

Many small school districts suffer from the double punch – devices that are failing or outdated combined with limited funding from a small tax base. The results are IT staff shortages that can’t keep pace with the repair/failure rate of student and teacher devices. But what if there was another way?

Lexicon recognizes the financial constraints faced by small districts. We strive to make our quality repair services affordable for all districts, regardless of size. And we’ve hit upon a solution. If a qualifying small rural district employs devices that are used by our AlwaysLearning customers, we can leverage our supply chain to provide bulk pricing that would not be available to these districts when purchasing on their own.

Here’s How It Works:

  • Contact us for pricing and discount details.
  • Discount eligibility based upon district size as well as device make, model, and age.
  • If you move to an AlwaysLearning plan (no obligation), we will credit a percentage of your repairs toward purchase.

If you’re a small district, get in touch and let us see what we can do to help!

TECHNICIAN TIP: AVOID DEAD BATTERIES AT THE START OF THE SCHOOL YEAR

Our stellar technicians – those dedicated men and women on the repair floor–are seeing more Chromebooks with dead batteries at the start of the school year. We suspect this is due to the majority of students who take their Chromebooks home at end-of-year and (gasp!) toss them aside, draining the battery. In the spirit of battery preservation, take a quick look at the tips Google has for preparing Chromebooks for long-term storage.

There is also the (cough-cough) option to have Lexicon store your devices in our 50,000 s.f. warehouse. Before being stored, all devices receive a thorough cleaning and inspection to identify any reported/unreported issues, and undergo a quality-assurance check. Learn more.

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW

Our 2022 resolution was to build a new website and–not to brag–but we are crushing it. Wander over to https://lexiconk12.com/ during your lunch hour and take a quick cruise through the site. Some areas we’re especially proud of include our case studies and testimonials, the explanation of our unlimited ADP, and our white-glove AlwaysLearning device management solution broken down into easily understandable chunks. After that, we just think it’s just a pretty nifty site.

Let us know what you think and if you have any questions on what’s there. Also, if you’re the first to find a typo or glitch of some sort, email us at alwayslearning@lexiconK12.com and we’ll send some free swag your way as a thank you!
