Despite rumors to the contrary, Cape Girardeau Central Junior High will distribute students’ district-provided tablet computers as scheduled. Cape Girardeau School District spokeswoman Dana Saverino said Thursday although students at Cape Girardeau Central High School received their devices during orientation, the middle-schoolers are on a more gradual track. She said seventh- and eighth-graders aren’t falling behind by not having the devices for the first few weeks of school, as many of them still are acclimating to their new environment. Saverino said confusion likely stemmed from the ordering and distribution schedule. The fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30 so we have to get board approval to get new items. Once we had approval we ordered them. The devices are part of the Cape Girardeau School District’s 1:1 program, and last year was the first year the middle schoolers received devices. The devices are at the school, Saverino said, but still are being prepared for use, engraved, given bar codes and having software installed.
