C4K computers come through the state’s surplus equipment program. By law, only public school districts in Washington state are eligible to receive this technology. Private schools should check with a similar federal program, Computers for Learning.

C4K Program Basics

C4K Background

Enabled with Session Law 5175 (1999), the C4K program makes it possible to donate state-owned, surplus computers and computer-related equipment to any public school district or educational service district in Washington state. 

Equipment designated for C4K must meet the state’s minimum configuration standards. Configuration standards, and program and distribution guidelines were developed by staff at OSPI, the departments of Corrections and Enterprise Services, K-12 school districts and educational service districts.
