Teachers at Beech Springs Intermediate School in Duncan distributed laptops to students last week. The school piloted a new 1:1 technology program that is being implemented district-wide in 2016.

D5 implements new program

Technology is changing the way teachers operate in Spartanburg School District Five.

The district, which distributed 3,700 laptops to students this year as part of a 1:1 technology program, is hoping to pioneer some new territory for local schools, as teachers and students seek to incorporate technology with daily instruction.
