Murkowski Donates Senate Computers to Alaska Schools
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today announced that five Alaska schools will receive a shipment of surplus computers from the United States Senate. Schools in Hoonah, Kake, Metlakatla, Nome and Pelican will each receive five computers from the United States Senate’s Computers for Schools Program.
“These computers will provide a substantial boost to the learning and teaching taking place in these communities,” Murkowski said. “I am pleased to once again be able to provide surplus Senate computers to schools in Alaska that truly need them.”
Schools were awarded computers based on the technological compatibility of schools’ current computers with the donated computers. Preference was given to schools where it was determined that a donation of five computers would have a significant impact on students’ academic achievement.
The U.S. Senate Computers for Schools Program helps public schools take advantage of the information technology age by channeling surplus computers into classrooms throughout the country.
