The Mars Area School District will provide each high school student with a laptop next year.
The school board on Tuesday unanimously approved leasing the laptops through Lenova Financial Services for three years at an annual cost not to exceed $280,000. The district will also update 75 other laptops for staff use.
"We are taking a look at how we are going to bring our district more into the 21st century as far as technology is concerned," Superintendent William Pettigrew said.
The goal is to eventually have all textbooks and writings online and becoming "paperless."
A set of guidelines for parents and students is being reviewed by solicitor Tom King, and will be approved at a later date.
