Nevada Recommits Funding for State 1-to-1 Program
Nevada plans to push forward with their state-funded 1-to-1 computing program after receiving positive results from an independent review study of the program's impact.
At the end of this summer's legislative session, Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a bill that codified the Nevada Ready 21 program into state law, continuing funding for the program and expanding applications to a new cohort of schools.
The 1-to-1 initiative, which provides all students served by the program with Chromebooks they can use at home and at school, is designed to prepare students with the skills they will need for tech-related jobs in "the New Nevada economy," said Sandoval, in a statement.
