The Idaho Department of Education announced Tuesday that high school students at 32 school districts will get laptops in the fall of 2013. Nine of those districts are in the Treasure Valley.
This is the first round of school districts to get laptops under Idaho’s Students Come First education laws. Those mandated a ratio of one mobile computer per high school student.
The state’s two largest districts, Meridian and Boise, as well as Vallivue and Kuna are part of this first rollout. All the state’s high school teachers will get a laptop this fall.
