MMSD tech proposal scaled back


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Metropolitan School District superintendent Jennifer Cheatham scaled back her plan to give all students a laptop or tablet.

Cheatham wants to put just 10 tablets in each classroom at the kindergarten and first grade levels.

All students from 2nd to 12th grades would still get their own device.

The Wisconsin State Journal says the change reduces the proposal's cost from $31 million to just under $28 million.

The school board will vote on Cheatham's proposal next Monday night.
