Laptops Replacing iPads at the Junior High: Changes are coming this summer to the State of Maine MLTI program that provides devices for 7th and 8th grade students.  The Department of
Education decided to replace their devices a year early and offer schools the choice of iPads or laptops for the next cycle of the MLTI program.  Our Junior High chose laptops for students next year, so students will be receiving 11 inch MacBook Airs.  Unfortunately, our
schools are not being given the option to purchase the current MLTI devices.  You can find more information on the MLTI program at  www.mlti.org
