The University of Wisconsin-Parkside has donated 25 computers to Washington Park High School, for use in the school's library computer lab.
The 25 Dell tower computers, with 17-inch flat panel monitors, will replace equipment that is out of date. District math and science supervisor John Esser said, "The equipment will be used primarily to help improve student achievement in math by providing access to software such as Geometer's Sketchpad. It will be a benefit to many other students and classes as well."
Dr. James Shaw, superintendent of Racine Unified, said UW-Parkside educators "are tireless supporters of the Racine community in our collective goal of student achievement. This donation will help bring better instructional technology to the students of Park High School."
