Chester High gets 43 laptops

In ongoing efforts to create a network of support for the Chester Upland School District (CUSD), staff, students, and parents, The United States General Service Administration (GSA) is partnering with the City of Chester Office of Mayor John A. Linder and the Obama Administration’s Strong Cities Strong Communities Initiative to provide forty three laptop computers to Chester High School. 

This new technology lab will aim to increase math and reading scores and supplement truancy and graduation rate tracking databases. 

“We are maximizing the use of the computers and lab by developing out of school time activities, making sure that this period is also productive for students and parents” Mayor Linder.

Invited guests Pennsylvania Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, State Representative Thaddeus Kirkland, GSA Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator Sara Manzano-Diaz and CUSD Assistant Superintendent Dr. Tony L. Watson, along with several School Board invitees, will join Mayor Linder and Chester City Council for presentation of the new Chester High School Computer Lab at an opening press conference scheduled for Monday November 19th, 2012 at 2:00PM inside Chester High School 232 W.9th Street Chester, PA.
