Bass Lake School Board of Education has approved technology upgrades at the elementary, middle and high school levels for 2016-17.

Most changes involve improved tools in the computer lab areas and mobile stuff, said board president Simon Greenless, who calls the new equipment “pretty neat.”

“It’s just above-average, but we’re excited about the changes,” Greenless said from his summer cabin in Winnipeg, Canada. “By no means is it ‘state-of-the-art’ — we’re not quite ready for that here in Bass Lake down there.”

The previous most-recent digital upgrade occurred in 2010, to some extent, according to official documents seen on a desk in the high school principal’s office. Prior to that: late-1989.

Budgeting for the tech-boost was made possible by “letting go” two special-needs instructors and somebody in the art/music department.
