How will the one-to-one digital learning environment be funded in future years?
The Windham High School’s operating budget will contain a line item for technology acquisition, no different than the current operating budget in place to support the other Windham Schools. The budget line item to sustain the laptop purchases is expected to be approximately $220,000 per year. Due to the phasing in of student laptops and instituting a lease program, it is expected that the laptop budget would not reach this budget number until the 2013-2014 school year. Based on projected enrollments, the following table demonstrates the budget for phasing in student laptops for the following school years: 2010-2011 – $53,000 2011-2012 – $109,000 2012-2013 – $163,000 2013-2014 – $217,000 Click here to download a PDF with more details of the funding plan.
