The Mt. Diablo Unified School District Board of Education will
meet on Wednesday to discuss the terms of a contract with the company “1-on-1 Learning With Laptops.”
The company based out of Los Angeles gives free tablet computers to students, which can be used for homework and tutoring.
Tutoring services could be provided to students at the following schools:
Bel Air, Cambridge, Fair Oaks, Meadow Homes, Rio Vista, Shore Acres, Sun Terrace, Ygnacio Valley Elementary and Oak Grove and Riverview Middle Schools.
The initiative would be financially bolstered by the 2001 No Child Left Behind Program.
The contract is worth about $55,000 to the company if approved.
Also on the agenda, is a professional development partnership with The Curriculum and Instructional Leaders Academy. The board will consider 80 hours of instruction that would cost between $1,265 to $2,530. (It’s cheaper if the district employee is a member of The Association of California School Administrators.)
