Default Ipad in school; a new opportunity

I just finished a quote for a private high school, they want a wireless network for their 632 students that will use Ipad instead of text book and pen. They make the experience last year with 1 class and was extremely satisfy.

Apple offer the Ipad at discount for the parents. It's not unique here in Quebec, few schools are making the move to the tablet, eliminating all the books and papers.

Make sure you leave behind lots of flyers/business cards and say you do iPad screen repairs

That is REALLY interesting. Thanks for sharing that. What service were you offering them? The wireless network itself? The iPads? Maintenance? All three?

I will do the Cabling, install new servers and a new internet access, firewall and others thing. The schools here, are group by comission scolaire ( a board) , so each region have their own comission and those comissions have their own technicians, fortunately they don't have the license to install wires in the wall, even wireless, some cables have to be install. Since the Ipad are purchase by the parents, they can go where they want for the maintenance, the technicians of the schools don't have the right to repair students equipment.

The technicians do the administration of the networks but they can't make the maintenance of the network and servers as it's under contract. ( anyway they don't know how to do so, I make quite few extra $ to support them with the admin task too, as it's not in the contract.
