GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- East Middle School now has new Chromebooks for students.
The school got a new set of computers courtesy of an $11,900 grant from the Lion's Club, and the D51 Foundation.
However, these new computers won't just be used for academics. In the past, the laptops were mainly used for core classes, but now, electives have access to them too.
The band students over at East now turn in some of their assignments online, and it makes their teacher's workload easier too.
"The students don't play their playing tests for me in class, they actually upload them. And so, some of the students don't have that technology at home, so they can come in at lunch, or before school or after school and take it into the back room and play their test and upload it," said Band Director, Jennifer Daigle.
East Middle School got a total of 33 computers with the grant.
