STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Fifth grade teacher Eliscia Mosley makes the most of a smart board in the classroom as do other teachers in the Starkville School District.
She now has additional help to coordinate technology into the classroom-a laptop computer provided by the district.
She plans ahead at home all year long.
"Sometimes as teachers you don't have a lot of time to search for activities and things to do in the classroom, so that's one easy way to get ahead of the game during the summer," Mosley said.
Her school received laptops last year. Now, every teacher will have that tool courtesy of the Starkville School District Board of Trustees.
"It's just great to have that extra technology to work wherever I'm at. The laptop gives me that mobility so I'm able to work at home, on vacation, when I'm visiting my in-laws and my parents. It's just great for everywhere," teacher Lori Taylor said.
The plan provides teachers with laptops which will be changed out every 3 years.
"There's a growing demand on teachers with paperwork and keeping up with grades and lesson plans that laptop capacity allows them to take that home nightly and weekends. It gives them a tool so they can work from home and get the work done that they need to have done in the classroom," Superintendent Dr. Lewis Holloway said.
Computers currently in the classroom found to be workable will be reconstituted and moved to a computer labs for students to use.
