ST. FRANCISVILLE - The West Feliciana Parish school system continues to expand a program that puts computers into students' hands for use in class or at home. The program started in 2007 from a state grant.

Jerome Matherne, the district's technology supervisor, tells The Advocate the one-to-one computer initiative now has 750 tablet computers in use and 160 laptop computers, most of them at West Feliciana Middle School.

Matherne says the sixth, seventh and ninth grades have Apple iPad tablet computers and the eighth grade uses Apple MacBook laptops.

The program began in the middle school but now has reached into some elementary grades and the high school's ninth-grade class.
