Questeq Participates in The Challenge Program with BCCTC

Questeq is proud to partner with our customer, Beaver County Career & Technology Center (BCCTC), to bring The Challenge Program to students in 2016-17. We will be coordinating and participating in several events at BCCTC throughout the school year, starting with several kick-off assemblies on October 25th.

The Challenge Program, Inc.’s mission is to build sustainable Business/Education partnerships while introducing students to careers in their communities. At Questeq, we believe that strong partnerships are vital to providing the best possible service and outcomes for our customer districts, their teachers and students.

Students who participate in The Challenge Program will have the opportunity to develop successful habits in several areas including attendance, STEM, community service, academic improvement and academic excellence. In addition, the students will participate with Questeq in programs designed to foster good employment habits and workforce readiness.

We will continue to support BCCTC along with the rest of our customers to help students succeed in college and career. Check back for more updates on this partnership throughout the school year.

2016 Mark Stainbrook Memorial Technology Award Recipients

Questeq strives to become an integral part of the school districts and communities in which we live and work. Our yearly technology award program provides eligible high school seniors from Questeq’s customer base an opportunity to apply for a one-time academic scholarship. Questeq is pleased to announce a total of $8,500 was awarded to 11 deserving students. For the two recipients attending Robert Morris University, the university will provide a one-time $500 matching award.

Questeq Brings ETM Model to New Jersey

For the first time in over 30 years Questeq will expand to new territory outside of Pennsylvania.  After 12 months of research and investigation the state of New Jersey has been selected.  Multiple states were considered but New Jersey provides the best fit for Questeq’s Educational Technology Management (ETM) model.

Questeq has aggressive plans to expand our Educational Technology Management service outside of Pennsylvania. This is one small step towards our goal.

We are excited to share our ETM model with members of the New Jersey educational community which includes over 200 school districts. All Questeq departments across the company are prepared to help New Jersey schools achieve unparalleled value from their technology investments. The Questeq sales team will be kicking off our new partnership by attending the NJASBO Conference in Atlantic City this week.
