Text: Cupertino, California. March 6, 1987. Apple Computer today announced a new program that will enable teachers and adminstrators in elementary through higher education schools to buy Apple personal computers at prices comparable to those reserved for educational institutions that purchase systems under Apple's Education Purchase Program (EPP). Starting April 15, full time professionals such as teachers, principals, superintendents, counselors, professors, deans and chancellors affiliated with schools currently purchasing computers through EPP will be eligible to buy select systems directly from Apple. "Apple and educators share a commitment to integrate computers into the learning process," said Lloyd Mahaffey, Apple's director of education sales. "But it's not only students who need to be prepared for a technological future. Educators and administrators alike need an affordable way to explore the uses of the technology. Furthermore, many of these individuals extend their work day at home by planning lessons, developing materials and catching up on administrative tasks. Whether it be school work or personal productivity, they want to use the same system at home as they do at school." The program will be implemented with the help of Apple's nationwide network of dedicated education dealers. Specially trained in the needs of educators, these dealers will help the customer choose an appropriate system, deliver the product, recommend key instructional and administrative solutions, and provide postsale support such as training and orientation. System configurations available include an Apple(R) IIe, Apple IIc or Apple IIGS(TM) with either a monochrome or color monitor, a Macintosh(TM) Plus, a Macintosh SE with 20-megabyte hard disk, and an ImageWriter(R) 2 printer. In addition, individuals who already have the Apple IIe can purchase the Apple IIGS upgrade kit. Educators should contact an Apple authorized education dealer, an Apple education sales representative, or their school district for specific information on ordering.
