The Milton schools will be getting hundreds of tablets, thanks to a technology initiative and $150,000 in funds from the Milton Foundation for Education, reported the Boston Globe.
"The Milton Foundation for Education is an independent, not-for-profit corporation, separate and distinct from the Milton Public Schools. The Foundation was established in 1995 to make possible innovative programs and opportunities that are beyond the reach of the school system's budget."
According to a press release in February, The Board of Trustees of the Milton Foundation for Education (MFE) announced its commitment to install a universal wireless infrastructure in all six Milton Public Schools. The plan was unveiled at a Milton School Committee meeting and announced on behalf of the MFE and the Copeland Family Foundation, which has partnered with the MFE to allow the Milton Public Schools (MPS) to take the critical first step in providing digital education in the Milton Public Schools
