The Knoxville School Board continues to move forward with exploring opportunities to enhance technology use in the district. Tuesday evening the board will once again meet with an Apple Education representative to discuss the one-to-one laptop program and its benefits. Thursday the technology committee will meet with Toy Waterman, Technology Consultant with the Area Education Agency, to discuss the different options available for students and which products work best for each age group. And on January 25th a group of district representatives will visit Van Meter Schools to observe how technology has improved their district since implementation of a laptop program three years ago. Superintendent Dr. Randy Flack says hopefully they can implement the new program into the curriculum by mid fall of the next school year.
