Why wasn't this initiative piloted by a single high school class first?

Piloting the 1:1 learning initiative would have been problematic in the High School because of the high number of classes that are taken concurrently by students in multiple grades. 

We discussed piloting the program in the Middle School or with a single Middle School grade, but decided that we are not breaking new educational ground with this initiative. Many Nebraska schools are already 1:1 and the things that we could learn from piloting a program locally can also be learned from other schools who have been through this process.
