Technology Donations
As a public school district serving the Bainbridge Island community, Bainbridge Island School District regularly looks for opportunities to increase and maximize its resources. The school district is open to considering donations of working equipment in good condition that are compatible with our network and operating systems, pertain to the mission and goals of the district and can be fully supported within our resources.
Sometimes equipment that is compatible for home or small business, is not compatible or cannot be supported within an enterprise-level, network system.
