card header iconSchool, Classroom, and PTO/PTA Purchasing

Washington Unified School District has specific equipment standards for printers, laptops, desktops, Chromebooks, and peripherals (keyboards, mice, headsets, etc.) that have been approved by the Technology Department and integrate with our network while meeting the needs of the K-12 classroom. 

When considering making purchases either as a classroom teacher, site administrator, or parent organization, please note the process below to make the acquisition as smooth as possible:
  1.  Submit your requests through the WUSD Helpdesk System. 
  2. Upon receiving your request we will look at current pricing, provide a quote, or examine our stock to determine how best to meet your technology needs.
  3. The Technology Department will contact you with the current pricing for approval BEFORE placing an order.
  4. Upon approval of the cost, we will request a budget code and place the order.
  5. Upon arrival of the equipment, we add it to the district inventory, attach a district asset tag, and prepare the device for deployment.
  6. Upon deployment, we will close the Helpdesk Ticket.
If you have any questions during this process, you can contact the Technology Department at any time.

card header iconDonated Items

Has a company, local business, or parent donated technology to your school or classroom?  We want to take your donations, however, not all computers integrate well into our network. 

If you have pending donation, please do the following:
  1. Contact Christy Jourdan in writing with the make and model of the equipment being donated.
  2. We will check to determine if the particular equipment will integrate with our network.  This means, will it be able to access the Internet, is upgradeable to Windows 7, has sufficient capacity and memory to meet our minimum standards, and is a model that we currently are using in the district.
  3. If the equipment meets the network standards, we will coordinate with the donator to accept the equipment to the Technology Department for service before deploying to the designated school site or classroom.
  4. If the equipment does not meet the network standards, we will notify the requestor in writing as to this determination with an explanation as to why we cannot accept the donation.
  5. We will make every effort to accept all donations from our generous WUSD supporters.

If you have any questions during this process, you can contact the Technology Department at any time.

card header iconEmployee Purchasing for Personal Use

We are currently finalizing details with our vendor for the Lenovo products to secure educational pricing for employees.  This would allow you to make personal purchases for yourself or your family at the same pricing the district is paying for our school devices.  This does not mean that should you purchase a computer that it would be able to access the district network or wireless.  This does mean that if you have children needing a device for school, you would be able to purchase and enjoy the same savings the district employs when working with our vendors. Please contact Christy Jourdan at (916) 375-7600 x1411 for information on how to take advantage of special employee purchasing for personal use.
