The West Central School Board approved a new three-year technology plan during their recent meeting.

Superintendent Charles Mellon said the plan is usually simply updated, but this year’s plan included another focus.

“One of the major goals in that plan has been to implement the one-to-one technology where every student would have their laptop or some device and we are on target with that,” said Mellon. “By the beginning of the fall of next year, every student will have a device.”

The one-to-one computer initiative was done in the middle school for this school year, and different devices have been handed to the students at the elementary school this year. With this plan, the corporation is on track to have full implementation of the computer initiative, including high school students, by August.
