Monroe County students show off technology to community members

MONROE, MI (13abc Action News) - Students in Monroe County showed off the latest technology used in the classrooms to community member Tuesday morning.

9 school districts, plus the Monroe County Intermediate School District, partnered with Monroe County Chamber of Commerce to generate support for the upcoming technology renewal levy.

"This is really a community millage that they have been very supportive of," said Dr. Stephen McNew, Monroe County ISD Superintendent. "We think that we owe them the opportunity to show them how we are using technology everyday."

The technology renewal levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 dollar home around $100 dollars a year, and would generate around $5 million.

"We know that our students are going to be immersed in technology when they leave our four walls," said McNew. "We feel it is our job to prepare them to use that technology."

Voting for the education technology renewal levy is on May 3rd.
