Grand Junction, CO - More than 9000 Chromebook computers are making their way to Mesa County for District 51 students.
The nearly $2.6 million purchase was made possible with bond money approved by voters this past fall. The purchase will bring the Chromebooks to every school in the district.
The original plan was to get 6500 computers, but the district was able to negotiate over 2000 more with their bulk purchase.
This brings the district closer to the goal of one computer for every 2 students, and will give a computer to each teacher.
If you want to see the new technology at work and what students can do with it, D51 is hosting a public tech expo on Wednesday, July 25 at the R-5 High School.
