The Knoxville School Board approved implementation of the one-to-one laptop program at their meeting last night.   The four year lease purchase agreement with Apple Inc. is for laptop computers for all teachers and administrators in grades pre-k through 12th grade along with all students in grades 6-12.  The total cost is $1,675,280 with all expenditures coming from the district’s physical plant fund.  School officials will be contacting Apple today to confirm the purchase and the computers will be distributed to teachers and administrators next month with students receiving theirs on December 1st.
