1-to-1 Initiative

The West Burlington School District is making a major purchase that will place new technology in the hands of its students. At the same time, the district is preparing to ask the community for more help in paying for such initiatives.

An attempt to give hundreds of students better access to technology did not go as planned for four southeast Iowa school districts.  The result is a lawsuit that claims the electronic devices the districts purchased were faulty.

Burlington High School students will soon have access to a laptop computer at home and in the classroom.
