DAYTON – West Side will be among the first 30 school districts across the state to achieve one-to-one ratio of laptop devices to students and teachers in the next two years.
“The faculty at West Side High School feel very fortunate to be chosen as part of the first deployment of mobile computing devices from the Idaho Department of Education,” said West Side School District assistant superintendent.
“Beginning this fall, all teachers at West Side High School will receive laptops and all students at the high school will receive them in the fall of 2013.”
Barzee said throughout the coming school year the Idaho State Department of Education, as well as the West Side School District, will provide specific training for teachers and administrators on how to appropriately utilize the laptops in the classroom.

“We strongly feel when the laptops are appropriately implemented with technology in the classroom, a student’s educational experience will be enhanced and student achievement and learning will be expedited,” he said.
Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna said the one-to-one initiative is a part of the Students Come First laws, which are comprehensively changing Idaho’s education system to ensure every student graduates from high school prepared to go on to post-secondary education or the workforce without the need for remediation.
