How is the one-to-one digital learning environment being funded?
The funding to provide technology for the opening of Windham High School is part of the Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment (FF&E) budget. This is a portion of the building project which is eligible for 30% building aid reimbursement from the Department of Education. The FF&E budget is being used for its intended purpose. The cost to outfit the high school with computers for students and staff with standard software licensing and extended warranties in year one is approximately $624,000. We realize a savings of $197,000 in year one by implementing a one-to-one model versus traditional model.
