A sixth-grade English teacher at Callison Elementary told Vacaville Unified leaders on Thursday that “they were going to experience what’s going on in our classrooms every day.”
After two other teachers and a student passed out small laptop computers to trustees, Tari Carolle updated the governing board on the use of technology in sixth-grade classes at the Vanden Road campus.
Among her first comments, however, was a reference to the board’s Nov. 6 approval of a resolution to buy 1,100 refurbished Google Chromebooks for $367,000.
Sitting at desk in front of the board’s dais, Carolle expressed excitement about the pending arrival of the laptops.
