Although MLTI no longers handles purchasing they now have a grant program that covers some costs. For example, if districts provide one to one devices for students, the DOE grants will provide up to $600 towards teacher devices in those schools. We have applied for and received this grant for our high school teachers.
Beginning in the fall of 2017 all high school students have a CTL J5 chromebook. These have touch screens and rotate 360 degrees so they can be used in tablet mode. We are in year two of a four year lease. These devices will be refreshed in the high school in 2021.
Each year we move the graduating seniors J5’s down into the elementary schools where the needed computing power is not as robust as it is in the high school. With each incoming 9th grade class, new chromebooks are purchased.
