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.
Some of the youngest students in the Keokuk School District will have an opportunity this summer to improve their reading skills through the Reach Out And Read program. The idea behind ROAR is to ensure they do not fall behind while they are outside of the classroom.
Mike Pribyl was surprised when he found out, last month that the Keokuk School Board had adopted a 1% income surtax to help pay for day-to-day educational needs. He said what really struck him was how little the public knew about it.
