Park School announces laptop program for incoming freshmen


Contributed by Melissa Gattine

Beginning this fall, the Park School will require all incoming first-year students to purchase a laptop equipped with a uniform software suite. The laptop program will allow faculty to increase integration of computer applications in the classroom, and eventually reduce the demand for fixed-station labs within the school.

The laptop program proposal has been under discussion for a year, and was evaluated by Information Technology Planning and Advisory Committee (ITPAC), which made a positive recommendation to the President.

Support for the program will be provided through reallocation and cooperation with Information Technology Services (ITS).
