One to One Laptop Pilot Begins
The Lincoln County Department of Education is pleased to announce the beginning of a new computer pilot program at Ninth Grade Academy and Lincoln County High School. As part of this one-to-one technology initiative, 9th and 10th grade students will have the opportunity use laptops for the 2013-2014 school year. The implementation of this program will allow students to have access to current software and state of the art programs which are funded and maintained by the school system. Students will be able to take the laptops home as well as use them in their classes for daily instruction. Parents and students are required to attend one of the assigned training sessions, fill out the necessary paperwork, and pay the $25 insurance fee in order to pick up their laptop. These sessions began September 24th and will continue through October 2nd. We are excited about the endless possibilities that this one-to-one program offers as we prepare our students to be college and career ready. If you have any questions about the program please contact school administrators at Ninth Grade Academy or Lincoln County High School.
