$1.2 million dollars in bond money approved for the Williamston School District last December may not be used for what was originally invisioned.
The money was invisioned for technology upgrades, but Michigan law restricts schools from spending bond money on items like software and staff training. The money will be used for hardware and fixtures. Meanwhile, residents are being surveyed to access their opinions on technology in schools, and to donate private funds to buy they software the school district still needs.
If you are a Williamston resident, go to http://www.wmston.k12.mi.us/SpeakUp, to take the survey and to donate. The survey will be available thru May 31. You can enter a drawing to win a free laptop as well.
