Saiz said the two sets of thirty laptops each placed in their own mobile labs would be purchased from Tech Depot at a total cost of $30,664.50.
“One computer lab would be going to the Junior High and one would be going to the Intermediate school,” said Saiz. “They can be checked out by any classroom and be used for any subject.”
John Ross Null, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, said the mobile laptop lab will provide a better chance of computer interaction for the students at both the Junior High and Zia.
“It is difficult with the number of students and the number of classrooms to utilize the [non-mobile] computer labs,” Null said. “There’s a lot more flexibility for teachers to access computers for classroom activities.”
