Technology instructor Maureen Larsen checks the students’ notebooks during a computer lab at Preston Junior High recently.

One of the things on Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction’s check off list is computer access for every high school student.

Both Franklin County School districts went to training last fall to help them prepare for trouble that may come if every student has access to cyber space.

Preston School Superintendent Joel Wilson said he is in favor of the boost in technology for the students, but he wasn’t crazy about taking money that could be used to increase the district’s salaries.

“I have not met a teacher who is not excited about technology,” Wilson said.
