Louisville board of education approves the purchase of 200 new lap top computers for high school students . The board held a special meeting and, according to the (pending) minutes, voted 6 to 0 to go ahead with the purchase of the “1:1 Initiative” computers for $280,512. The motion also included purchasing messenger bags for a cost not to exceed $6,041 and software for $13,999 per year.
