LHS officials expect laptops in the classroom as early as next month

LEWISTON, ID - Lewiston High School officials are hopeful to see laptops in the classrooms as early as next month as part of Idaho's Student's Come First laws.

Faculty will be among the first to receive the one-to-one laptops so they can begin to understand the devices and their learning management system before students receive them in Fall of 2013.

Lewiston High School Principal Lance Hansen said by November all instructors will have a laptop in hand and wireless Internet will be routed throughout the school.

"I think there's a renewed energy for technology in our building," said Lewiston High School Principal Lance Hansen. "Not only did our administration, but also our instructors, spend countless hours this summer looking at ways to integrate technology into the classroom."

Hansen said it's been a joint effort by faculty and staff to make sure that when all of the laptops arrive next year, everyone knows how to use them.

LHS, along with four first round school districts and one charter school, were selected from north central Idaho to receive the one-to-one initiative. Other districts include, Cottonwood, Culdesac, Genesee, Highland and the Idaho Distance Education Academy.
