Wyola, Ashland schools receive five computers each from U.S. Senate

U.S. Senator Jon Tester today announced recently that he is donating 25 Senate computers to schools serving Native American students. Five of these computers will go to both Wyola Elementary School and Ashland Elementary School.

Tester secured the computers through the U.S. Senate’s Computers for Schools Program. The program integrates technology into public school classrooms.

“Public education is the foundation of our democracy and future workforce,” said Tester, a former Big Sandy teacher and School Board member. “Computers will better prepare the next generation of Montanans for a bright future.”

Tester has been a longtime advocate for bolstering technology in Montana classrooms. He recently called on the FCC to update a program aimed at bringing broadband to rural schools after reports of long delays and denials.
