A technology refresh plan for the 2016-17 school year has been approved by the Bond County Community Unit 2 board of education.
By accepting the plan, the board has committed to utilizing up to $50,000 of education fund lease levy money to continue to bring the district’s technology program up to standard.
Meg File, district technology coordinator, said the plan includes spending $17,000 for a chrome box library lab and a mobile chrome book lab at Greenville Junior High School and $18,000 for 25 staff laptops and desktop computers in the district.
The chrome book lab is used for the Partnership For Assessment of Readiness For College and Careers testing, better known as PARCC.
That leaves $13,356 remaining in this year’s technology refresh plan budget.
The district has had an annual refresh plan every year since 2013-14.
