Many teachers in the Saugus Union School District are expected to have new laptops this year, according to an agenda item from Tuesday’s SUSD Governing Board meeting.

These new laptops from ConvergeOne will replace existing laptops for 441 general education, special day, Resource Specialist Program (RSP) and speech teachers in the district.

The purchase of the new laptops follow the district’s first goal Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP): increase student achievement.

This goal and action item aims to increase student and teacher integration of technology in teaching, learning and assessment.

The laptops, from a National Association of State Procurement Officers (NASPO) Contract, are expected to cost a total of $303,048.59.

Governing Board members are also expected to approve of the 2018 Title 1 Summer School Academies at Cedarcreek, Rio Vista, and Skyblue Mesa during their regular meeting.
