Projector replacement cycles

October 30, 2007 § Leave a comment

So, we’re running into some problems with projectors in my district.

Evidently, about 5 years ago, one of our campuses went out and bought the cheapest projectors they could find with grant money.  Now, those projectors are dying at an alarming rate and the teachers who are used to using them are getting frustrating and angry, understandably so.

The problem is, they were purchased 5 years ago, and while our district has been pretty progressive about replacing computers, I don’t think anyone ever thought about replacing projectors.

Projectors are very quickly coming into their own.  In fact, our district has a plan that every classroom will have a Smart Board and a mounted projector within 3 years, but now I’m starting to wonder if anyone has thought about a replacement cycle for projectors.

What is your district doing?  What is the plan, what is the life cycle?
