New laptops bring computer total to 500+
TECH ADVANTAGE: Senior Chad Cipollone uses one of NDCL's new laptops as he works on a research paper for his English class.
This week we completed the roll-out of more than 200 new Windows 8 laptops, bringing the total number of computers on campus to more than 500 for our student population of 700.
Special thanks to Technology Director Mr. Phil LeMay for his efforts to customize the new devices for the needs of our students and teachers. Librarian/media specialist Mrs. Amy Myers assisted in this tedious and time-consuming process.
A $20,000 grant from the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland's recent capital campaign funded the purchase of new laptops for use in our Theology classes. We purchased the additional laptops with a combination of state and NDCL money.
