“Chromebooks and computers as we have funding. We haven’t been able to make a large purchase so that’s one of the things we’re looking at purchasing. We’re also looking at other technology just to become more in line with other schools across the nation,” she said.

She also said there’s been significant learning loss due to the pandemic. This is a pervasive issue across Southwest. GA.

To combat it they’re using funds to offer free summer school and Saturday school.
