Beginning July 1, 2020, Globe Unified School District and Bicentennial Union High School District will outsource their information technology to K12itc, a technology company exclusively focused on K-12 schools.
With technology needs growing and online learning becoming the new reality for students across Arizona, smaller and rural districts face different challenges and obstacles compared to larger districts in Arizona.
Globe Unified School District and Bicentennial Union High School District are the company’s first school districts in Arizona.
“We are excited about partnering with K12itc for support for our technology networking in Globe,” said Supt. Jerry Jennex.
“As a rural district that finds it hard to keep up with ever changing technology needs, we believe that the power of their infrastructure support will be transformational for our district’s growth in educational technology and network security,” Supt. Jennex said.
“We look forward to a mutually positive working relationship and believe our investment will provide many positive returns,” Supt. Jennex said.
K12itc’s managed services can save school districts up to 15 percent annually while providing the most secure and reliable network.
Today, K12itc provides managed services to more than 60 school districts nationwide. The company is headquartered in Kansas City, Mo.

K12itc will provide both districts with Albert, a managed technology platform for K-12 schools.
“We are ready to bring Albert to Arizona,” said Brian Nelson, Sales Manager at K12itc.
“Albert can bundle every aspect of a school’s IT infrastructure, connectivity and maintenance into one efficient and secure package,” Nelson said.
