School's Plan to Issue Laptop Computers Delayed

January 13, 1998

An innovative program at Redondo Union High School to give all ninth-graders their own personal laptop computer for homework and assignments has been delayed.

Freshmen were expecting to receive their 7-pound computers in November, but because of a manufacturing delay the computers will not arrive until February, said Pat Hosken, the school's director of technology.

The school last week received 25 laptops from NetSchools Corp., the company that has the contract to provide the computers. They will be used for teacher training. But the other 475 computers that were ordered have not been completed.

Redondo Union would be the first public high school in California to issue take-home laptops to an entire grade level.
