However, 22 school districts are still trying to reach Louisiana’s goal, including the Central, Lafayette, Orleans, Livingston, West Baton Rouge and Jefferson school systems.

Schools and districts still wrestling with the issue represent a mixture of elementary and high schools, White said.

“Technology became an important part of our daily lives years ago so it is not a question of a deadline,” he said.

White’s comments were an update on recent computer gains and an elaboration on a briefing he gave to the House and Senate education committees on Jan. 15.
