Clinton HS Gets Technology Approval

Clinton High School students will have improved technology in their classrooms starting next year thanks to an initiative approved last week by the Clinton Board of Education.


Principal Jerry Wayne (right) indicates the Board approved their request for Microsoft Surface Tablets. He believes it is all about preparing students for the next stages of their lives.



For Wayne, the Microsoft Surface offers students "phenomenal possibilities". He explains they went through a needs assessment and decided what the device could for flexibility with different platforms they wanted to produce work on was most appealing.



While the lump-sum payment which will be just short of $400-thousand seems large, Superintendent of Clinton Schools, Curt Nettles says that payment will put a device in each high school student's hands and bring nearly the entire district up to 1-to-1.



Nettles indicates they are considering the possibility of allowing graduating seniors the option of purchasing their devices at a discounted price.
