One-to-One in the Golden State

This article relates the story of one California school district that is making laptop ownership for students a reality, despite the overwhelming financial burden. In January 1996, Clovis Unified School District found itself in a situation familiar to many districts. Fresh from a conference in Redmond, Washington, sponsored by Microsoft and Toshiba, Superintendent Dr. Walt Buster and Associate Superintendent Dr. Ginny Boris returned to their district buzzing with the possibilities that one-to-one computing presented. However, in a meeting with Chuck Philips, the district's chief information officer, they quickly realized their budget could not support such an initiative. Clovis, though, was determined not to give up on the one-to-one dream. The school district partnered with parents and the community to make laptop ownership a reality. After 10 years of sustainable integration, the district continues toward the goal of providing a laptop for every student.
