The school board approved the purchase of the Pearson English/Language Arts textbook for 9th through 12th grades in digital format. In addition, each language arts teacher at PHS will have a class set of Chromebooks for use as the classroom textbook.
With the purchase of the digital version, including all the Chromebooks, the district will save approximately $10,000 over the course of the adoption of the textbook.
"As the price of textbooks increases and the price of technology declines, we are excited to see the price point make the use of technology an affordable option," Superintendent Donald McIntyre said. "The higher price of consumables made this an economical alternative."
