Mason Public Schools has upgraded technology to make learning more fun and efficient for students and teachers. Mason Public Schools used about $25,000 of Title 1A grant money, a federal grant for at-risk students, Title 2A grant money, used for professional development and technology, and MTIP money specifically for the Mason Technology Infusion Plan for the upgrades in technology. Originally, the technology plan was created so each class room would be a smart classroom with a document camera, data projector and a SMART board. As technology has changed, so have the guidelines for the money. Teachers in the elementary schools will be receiving iPads for the classroom.
