The district also threw away about 20 broken LC580s, which I was able to cannibalize and make about a dozen well-equipped machines. And I had ethernet cards left over so I could get some teachers on the Internet finally.
I got in a bit of trouble for this, of course. They wanted me to come up with a value for all that I rescued: they could count it as money spent upgrading our site's technology. Instead, I sent them a time card claiming 20 hours of work reclaiming it. They left me alone after that.
