TO:                  Superintendents of Schools


FROM:            Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner

RE:                   Continuation of the MLTI (Laptops) Into the High Schools



Please be advised that in the interest of building on the successes we have had with the MLTI program in grades 7 and 8, we are continuing to review all options available to us to continue the program into the high school grades as soon as the opportunity presents itself.


The purpose of this letter is to assure you that prior to any final arrangement for extending the MLTI program, the Department will seek input from superintendents and clarify any final plan to go forward with you when it is finalized, hopefully in the next week or two.  Media reports may have suggested that we are narrowing our consideration of the options, but at this time we are still exploring a number of possible approaches.


We appreciate your support of the laptop program, and we look forward to presenting a plan that you can support and that will continue the opportunities and advantages of laptops to high school students across Maine.
