All: Wanted to share with you some information on the technology proposal the Board of Education reviewed and approved at its meeting this week. Briefly, if MCPS receives approval from the County Council, every school in the county would be outfitted with wireless networks and all elementaries would have Prometheans in all classrooms by the start of the next school year. Here is the story that ran in Gazette.net with more detail.http://www.gazette.net/

From our MCCPTA Summer Area meetings in June, it was clear that access to technology for every child was a core concern of PTAs and parents from every corner of our county. This initiative seeks to eliminate discrepancies between schools, and create an equitable, consistent base of technology across our school system. Stay tuned.
