Cobb Moves on Laptop Program

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) -- A concept to provide laptop computers for all high school students in the Cobb County system was approved by the county school board today, to be ushered in by a limited pilot program.

Spokesman Doug Goodwin said, "They approved the concept for the first phase of the program. The board did not vote on the contract."

Goodwin said the next step would be approving a contract for the pilot program which would cover four schools in the county.

Under the current plan, teachers would get laptops this year. Current computer connections at schools would be revamped and as many as four schools would become test sites for the laptop plan. The vast majority of high school students would not get laptops sooner than next year.
