Report on La. school technology readiness released

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Wondering how your child's public school measures up in computer access for its students?

The state education department released a district-by-district snapshot Wednesday that shows about one-third of school districts are falling short.

Of Louisiana's 69 school districts, the report says 47 have reached the desired ratio of seven students to every one computer, including 906 of 1,180 schools. That covers 76 percent of students.

Three districts — Cameron, St. Helena and St. James parishes — have reached a one-to-one ratio of students to computers.

The issue of technology has received increased scrutiny because of new online testing tied to the Common Core educational standards that are being phased in to Louisiana schools.

The report, with information by district and by individual school, is available online at:
