Idaho Begins Bidding Process For Laptops For Teachers/Students

The 85-page document was obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request. Idaho is phasing in laptops while making online classes a requirement to graduate, under reforms authored by public schools chief Tom Luna. A task force created to help implement Luna’s changes recommended the device come in the form of a laptop. That recommendation is mentioned, but not a requirement in the request for proposals that was issued last Wednesday. The document includes a description of what should be in the device.
