(LOOGOOTEE) - Loogootee schools will continue to increase the technology available to students during the upcoming year, but the pace of advance will be less than was originally planned.

The Washington Times-Herald reports that teachers are saying they need more electronic devices for students and teachers to work with during the school day. There is also a need for better training on those devices.

Next school year, Technology Coordinator Mike Tippery says the number of computers at the school will double. The amount of broadband used would also increase.

After a year review, Tippery hopes to have an electronic device for all high school students.

The technology plan would cost $118,000, which was about $60,000 more than he has available in his budget. The board agreed to transfer $60,000 from the Rainy Day Fund to cover the cost of the plan.

In other business: the board was informed that four teachers and two principals from Sweden will arrive Friday to begin a 10-day visit of Loogootee schools. This is a continuation of the Global Teacher Exchange Program.
