Wolford School kindergarten through sixth-grade students were introduced to 11 brand new computers installed in the elementary library/computer lab last week. Brenda Mitzel, Wolford math and computer teacher, provided expert tech support as the kids familiarized themselves with the new equipment.

Superintendent Larry Zavada said that although the purchase of new computers was not in this year’s budget, board members were all for the expenditure, once informed about the proposed equipment and how it would be used. The computers feature 23.5-inch monitors, purchased from DakTech Computers in Fargo, a North Dakota company. Rather than tossing out the old equipment it has been relocated to each of the elementary classrooms in order to provide individualized remediation and enhanced student activities. The high school computer lab was equipped with all new computers in 2012. According to Zavada, Wolford School now has a computer/student ratio of 1:1.
