Free computers for your school!

Montana's School Computer Equipment Program

The program collects computer equipment from state and federal sources, and private donations to distribute at no cost to Montana's K-12 public schools. The equipment is stored in Helena and is operational, but all data (including operating systems) is removed for security purposes. 

The program basics:

  • Schools are responsible for traveling to Helena to retrieve equipment and must have an appointment.
  • Equipment cannot be reserved as space in the storage facility is limited.
  • The inventory of surplus equipment varies from day to day
  • The program maintains a waiting list of schools interested in equipment and schools are contacted about their eligibility, usually via email. 
  • Contact Scott Buswell to seek information, put your school's name on the waiting list, or to check the availability of equipment. Please provide the following info in your email: name, school district, school name, and phone number.
