District to provide laptops to students in grades 9, 10


Every Lower Dauphin School District student in grades 9 and 10 would receive a school-owned laptop for their use as the district plans to move forward with its “1 to 1” technology initiative, Superintendent Sherri Smith reported to the Lower Dauphin School Board on Monday, Feb. 16.

While the district has planned for staff training, parent meetings and student procedures concerning the use of the laptops, the initiative is a proposal for the coming school year’s budget that arrives with a price tag of roughly $200,000. One person will be hired as a technology coach for the program, Smith said.

The district’s plans are well underway for the change to its current technology, which has some problems.
