The idea will provide approximately 12-hundred students their own portable computer to use in the classroom. Estimated cost for the pilot program would be $976-thousand dollars and cover students from grades 9 through 12. Assistant Superintendent Dr. Sherry Copeland tells KZIM-KSIM tells KZIM-KSIM they have already researched schools using technology and spoke with students.
