An $8,672 grant from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation will allow Marian High School to purchase eight new computer systems better equipped to interface with classroom Smartboards.
According to Sr. Catherine Clifford, Marian High School principal, the current classroom computers do not fully interface with the eight Smartboards purchased and installed during the past two years. Mixing old and new technologies is causing serious problems, and does not allow teachers to fully utilize the new educational tools, she explained.
“Information technology is vital to educating today’s students,“ said Charitable Foundation Chairman Robert P. Lamprey. “ We are pleased to help the school get a better return on its investment in classroom technology.”
