“We’ve been spending a lot of time on this,” principal Patrick Batey said. “We wanted to be very careful.” Batey stressed that the laptop program will not replace classroom teaching, but will enhance and supplement it. He said it became obvious to school officials that digital-based learning is here to stay and keeping current with changing technology is important. “That’s one of the reasons we need to do it,” he said. “Things explode so quickly. If you’re not looking forward and looking on the horizon, then you are behind.” Young said the laptops will be more useful than the traditional desktop computers in school settings. Students will bring the laptops to class, utilize them during study periods and take them home to do class assignments.
