Grant to provide laptops for BHS students


Bonham – The Bonham ISD has successfully competed for a Connections Grant in the amount of approximately $800,000 which will provide laptop computers to all high school students.

The district partnered with the Apr ISD, in Smith County, to apply for the grant.

The grant targets schools in high poverty areas with the purpose of creating model schools using technology and digital content to enhance learning.

Staff at Bonham ISD will be taught to convert traditional paper based content into digital media that can be accessed from any device. Paper textbooks will be replaced with their digital counterparts and online content posted for easy access.
