Wes-Del Community Schools is one of 18 corporations in the state that will enhance its math instruction with technology as part of a pilot program paid for by the Indiana Department of Education. As a result, next year middle school and high school students enrolled in pre-algebra or algebra classes will sit down at desks with 10-inch laptops. The $44,350 grant paid for 75 of the small computers, plus access to an online mathematics curriculum. Mike Bush, curriculum and technology coordinator for the district, said, “We’re working to be a true one-to-one school.” Within two years, Bush hopes that there will be a computer for every student in grades 6-12. The new 75 laptops are in addition to the 400-plus other computers already in place in corporation classrooms and labs.
