Wasington Gov. Gary Locke and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have announced a new program to develop up to six smaller high-tech high schools around the state, and programs to link communities with the kids that go to them.

Under the Connecting Schools and Communities Initiative, the foundation will invest about $5 million to help establish technology-enriched schools and get the programs started.
