CPSD receives new MacBook Airs with EDLA funds

Apple Devices The Clinton Public School District recently received a shipment of 1,900 brand new MacBook Airs, purchased with funds issued through the Equity in Distance Learning Act (EDLA).


“We’re really excited that these new computers have arrived and can’t wait to distribute them to students at Sumner Hill and Clinton High School,” CPSD Technology Director Kim Griffin said.


“Every device is covered under AppleCare, and every three years, that coverage runs out,” she added. “When that happens, we replace the older devices with newer ones.”


CPSD has also purchased new iPads for all students in elementary and middle school. These devices will arrive at a later date.


The Clinton Public School District is in the middle of its eighth year of being a 1-to-1 school district where every student and teacher are provided with an Apple device.


“We are blessed to be in a community that saw eight years ago the importance of supplying our students with the technology needed in order to provide a quality educational experience second to none,” CPSD Superintendent Dr. Tim Martin said.


“Because our district has been 1-to-1 for nearly eight years, we were able to continue instructing our students through these unprecedented times,” he added. “These new devices will allow for our students to continue their educational journey while exposing them to the newest technology available, giving them a leg up on their future, whatever that may be.”
