• Digital Devices

    The MacBook Air, iPad Pro, and iPad were selected by the CPSD Technology Planning Committee after an extensive review of the instructional and technical needs of the classroom. Teachers and administrators were included in the decision-making process. All equipment was selected from the Mississippi Express Products List, a multi-vendor list of proposals competitively selected by MS Information Technology Services (ITS) which meet all requirements of Mississippi law for legal procurement of technology products.
