Buffalo Schools to Give Laptops to Students
Buffalo Public Schools is providing some students with laptops.
Buffalo Public Schools distributed laptops to students in elementary and middle school yesterday, but it's not too late to get one for your child. Students in grades pre-K through 2nd grade are not eligible to receive a laptop, according to WGRZ. According to the district, all of the laptops have been sanitized.
"It is a huge lift because we want to be very precise in terms of one making sure we target the needs of the district based on the needs of the district. ~ Myra Burden, the Buffalo Public School's chief technology officer via WGRZ
