The district also plans to have an i Pad for every fifth and sixth grader this year and next, then broadening that to fourth through ninth grades the following year.“We’re on the right path, definitely want to push forward and have the policies ready for review as soon as possible, and have some public input on those.” Board member Colleen Conklin was very concerned about the immense additional workload on district technology staff, once thousands of additional computers and i Pads are in students’ hands.

FPC has its own student help desk already, making technical support built-in there.

CAM: Your encouragement does not signify my authorization. And I’m from New York, which means that I will take New York action.

CAM: You tell people the story of what happened using the evidence these people provided and if you have any ability as a prosecutor, you’ll win the case.
