Governor Kitzhaber is signing a bill directing school districts to adopt policies for allowing students to use personal electronics like Smartphones and I-Pads in the classroom.

 

Shay Mikalson with the Bend La Pine School District says this is nothing new to them.

 

"This House Bill directs districts to allow students to bring that. We’ve allowed students to bring them, by board policy, for a number of years; so that doesn't change any aspect. And we've wrestled with that as a district and have really moved forward with a plan to provide those resources to all of our students. As we look forward, we're in the process of a digital conversion that will provide again those technology tools for our teachers and all of our students."

 

Mikalson says they are establishing a "lending library" for those students who don't own a Smartphone or I-Pad.
