K12 Federation Seeks to Unite School Technology Leaders Nationwide

It began as a community of Illinois, Nebraska, Nevada and New York “operators” — or “large school districts, purchasing cooperatives for various products and services, and state level providers,” according to a prepared statement from the K12 Federation. “By coming together, they realized they could build great tools that not only led to more effectively acquisition and implementation within schools, but also optimized the use of resources and public spending through pooled efforts and a centralized source for acquiring reliable technology.”

The K12 Federation provides low cost services and solutions for security and other common tech problems at schools. More information can be found on the K12 Federation site.
