The Sulphur Springs School Board approved purchase of 750 two in one tablets for Middle School students Monday night at a cost of more than half a million dollars. Superintendent Michael Lamb explained its’ all part of a plan. The plan began several years ago and continues with this purchase assisting 7th and 8th grade students.
The funding for the tablets comes from the fund balance. He said that in the end if the district spends one million dollars to put computers into the hands of students, it will be a good deal for the local system.
