The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports on how the Birdville Independent School District of Tarrant County, Texas, is working to address building-infrastructure concerns related to a sharp increase in the number of school computers. When Birdville put more computers in students’ hands, it overtaxed the capacity of 50-year-old buildings to supply necessary power. Voters are now being asked to approve a five-year, $215 million bond package to upgrade and replace old buildings so they will be able to support $30 million worth of new technology purchases. Educators working in the district say these building improvements are crucial for the future of technology in their schools. (Note: This site requires registration.)
