Protecting Classroom Technology with Virco Storage

stealingcomputerEarlier this year, Pacific Elementary School was robbed of nearly 60 iPads before anyone arrived at the California school for work. Due to the clouds and fog around that time of day, cameras were not able to pick up the best image of the thieves, but it has been made clear that they knew what they were going to steal. 59 iPads were locked in a secure metal cabinet in an even more secure area of the room. Yet these thieves were strategic in using bolt cutters to break the security and get away with several bags of classroom technology.

If you’re telling yourself that thieves will always find a way to get past security, you’re probably right. That’s what actual thieves do. However, many would-be thieves, including children, are more prone to steal pieces of technology that are left unsecure. And right now, far too many schools include computers, iPads, CD Players, and plenty of other expensive items in open, unsecure areas of a visible classroom.

Virco, a leader in classroom furniture and school furniture, insists on teachers and school administrators using some kind of locked storage, if only to deter the would-be thieves. One product they’ve created is called the Virco Metal Storage Cabinet. At 36-1/4″ Wide x 18-1/4″ Deep x 30-1/4″ High with adjustable shelves and 1/2″ shelf increments, this storage unit comes factory assembled with a locking mechanism. offers the Metal Storage Cabinet for under $500 and for all the costly investments in technology that you make for your students, you simply can’t afford to have solid security.
