Many students at Plymouth High School will be ditching some of their books this fall to spend more time on the Internet, and school officials are perfectly fine with that. It’s part of a new program in which all Plymouth High School students by next year will be equipped with a mini-laptop computer, known as a Netbook, at the school district’s expense. Doing so will help prepare students for the 21st century and save the cash-strapped school district some money, officials say. “We think we can meaningfully engage young people in learning with tools that will be a major part of their life and tools they are familiar with,” Plymouth Superintendent Clark Reinke said.
