School district buys technology, still short on tech staff

Fort Morgan Board of Education members on Monday approved almost $500,000 in new technology to improve education — but Fort Morgan High School will still not have enough teachers to offer all of its technology classes. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus funding, for instance, is paying for the special education computers, and the 130 other computers will be paid for with money from the district maintenance fund mill levy as part of the annual replacement schedule, Wagers said. Unfortunately, state budget cuts and the consequent reductions for the district have meant cutting some teaching positions, including those which are specifically aimed at teaching the use of computer technology.
