Vancouver Public Schools Completes District-Wide $2.8 Million Technology Refresh

Vancouver Public Schools, in Vancouver, Washington, and TEQlease Education Finance recently completed a district-wide, $2.8 million technology refresh for 8,000 new student chromebook devices, through a four-year financing arrangement with TEQlease Education Finance. Vancouver Public Schools received board approval to make the investment to provide technology to optimize writing, communication and creativity.

Dana Andrada, Senior Account Executive, and TEF’s finance team worked hand-in-hand with Phoenix-based IT reseller Troxell Communications, now Troxell-CDI, in fulfilling VPS’ student device technology refresh. All devices were delivered by August 2019. “The whole team at VPS was a pleasure to work with,” said Dana Andrada. “I couldn’t be more grateful with how responsive, organized and efficient they were.” Steve Bratt, VPS’ Director, IT Infrastructure & Operations added “The lease rate offered by TEQlease was very competitive, and the documentation process went very smoothly for a transaction of this size.”
