Maine Laptop Program Expands to High Schools – Minus Hardware Funding
Posted by: Justina Spencer
Districts in Maine are finding a variety of ways of expanding the state's one-to-one laptop program to the high school grades.

The Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) broke new ground in 2002 and 2003 by distributing more than 30,000 computers to every seventh- and eighth-grader in the state's public schools. Now the Maine Department of Education is doing what it can to expand this first-in-the-nation program to the high school level. But, unlike the state's middle school program — which has covered the costs of the software, hardware, network infrastructure, warranties, technical support, professional development, and data back-up services — the high school expansion plans are relying heavily on local funding and support.
