How was the decision to implement a 1:1 learning initiative made?

The Lincoln Lutheran School Board directed a committee be formed in the fall of 2013 to investigate the implementation of a 1:1 learning initiative.  The committee, consisting of school representatives Matt Heibel, Matt Haden, Lloyd Sommerer, and Jeff Rickords (also a parent); parent representatives Samith Kollipara, Julie Kreizel, and Matt Steuber; student representatives Brittany Goodro-Sincebaugh and Dylan Brockhaus; and School Board member Bryce Wendland (also a parent) was formed and started meeting in November 2013.  A recommendation was presented by the committee to the School Board at its January meeting that a 1:1 learning initiative be pursued for the 2014-2015 school year.  The School Board unanimously approved that recommendation.
