Wake County schools are drawing up their wish lists for new computers and other technology-related items.
Superintendent Tony Tata said Tuesday he's releasing at least $25,000 this month to each school for a "technology refresh." The money is coming from funds set aside for technology in the $1.056 billion capital improvement program developed in 2006.
Tata said the individual schools will be using the school system's purchasing power to make bulk purchases of new technology. The idea here is to help schools keep their technology up to date.
There's been a long-running debate about whether technology should be part of school capital improvement programs.
