ICT cash boost for Angus schools

Angus Council has pledged funding for schools to ensure they have access to the latest information technology. The authority’s Education Committee agreed on Thursday to allocate £550,000 for the latest technology in schools.

ICT is becoming more and more important in providing learning and teaching opportunities. The latest investment will enable wireless provision to be introduced in primaries in the local clusters. The cash will also allow upgrades across the secondary sector.

Convener Sheena Welsh said: “The council recognises the importance of ICT in primary and secondary schools. We have made a significant investment to ensure the majority of our schools have access to the latest wireless technology and equipment.”
