UNIT 2 BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING
The Unit 2 Board of Education met at the Sorento Center Monday night. Unit 2 schools are adding more technology. Sorento Principal Carpenter demonstrated a mobile netbook computer cart. The cart has 30 netbook laptops that may be moved from room to room. The grant, recently secured by Unit 2, will allow these carts of netbook laptops to be placed in every 3rd and 4th grade room at Greenville Elementary School. Those netbooks should be arriving soon, and training is being set up for the teachers to become accustomed to the new technology and its uses in the classroom. The board approved the purchase of a new 71-passenger bus and a small buss. The bus fleet will be upgrading its camera systems during the summer, installing sixteen digital cameras at a cost of nearly $1,200.00 each. The Greenville Junior High Gym will get a new look this summer. The floor will be sanded, painted and resurfaced for a cost of approximately $13,000.
