Several reports, contracts and presentations, including technology use in district classrooms, are on the agenda when Vacaville Unified leaders meet tonight in open session in Vacaville.
Callison Elementary teachers Tari Carolle, Diana Moore and Diane Tomovick will update trustees about technology use in district classrooms.
Their presentation will come two weeks after the governing board approved a contract to buy 1,100 refurbished Google Chromebooks for $367,000; and it will come one day after President Obama, in the East Room of the White House, told superintendents from the across the country, including Kris Corey of Fairfield-Suisun Unified, to bolster his initiative to bring more schools into the Digital Age. More than one-half of American public schools do not have high-speed Internet access in their classrooms.
