INFORMATIONAL LETTER NO:  109

 

POLICY CODE:  IHAJ

 

 

 

TO:                  Superintendents of Schools

 

FROM:            Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner

 

DATE:             May 6, 2004

 

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.
