In room 11 at Santa Rita Elementary School in Los Altos, the screen on Nika Darvish’s Macbook is a mess of color. “I don’t like seeing all this orange,” Nika says, pointing to a virtual list of math exercises, with orange designating the need to review them. The advanced math student was working on linear equations Thursday, while her classmates studied their own math problems on school laptops.

She was one of 120 students from three district schools who participated in the program during its pilot phase last year.
