With current technology improving every day, our Beaverton students are far behind with computers that are several years old. Students should be engaged and taught in a way that will help them succeed once they graduate. That requires new ways of learning with technology. And that is not possible with old computers – a major reason why the Beaverton School Bond is so important. The Bond, Measure 34-219, would bring in $7 million a year for technology alone if it is passed. All without increasing the tax rate.

The new technology has the potential to change the face of learning in the district, say some principals and teachers. It is an additional classroom tool, and in the hands of a properly trained teacher, the devices can make a classroom sing.

Students would benefit greatly with an upgrade to the school’s technology – from new computers to upgrades to the current wireless Internet. With the Bond, the district would add 1,200 wireless access points and would distribute about 2,000 new computers throughout the district as early as this summer.
