The Fort Worth Independent School District is going high tech.
Last November, voters approved a sweeping $490 million bond package to put technology in the hands of students. That upgrade started Wednesday, when 72 students got their first laptops.
Fort Worth joins a growing list of North Texas districts that are changing the way students learn.
Lake Worth ISD was one of the first to embrace the digital age. Superintendent David Fitts joined Shelly Slater on News 8 at 4 to talk about the impact it has had on student’s education.
