San Angelo schools will be receiving new technology equipment. The money to buy the equipment is from the Waited Average Daily Attendance or WADA. In the last few years, SAISD has been in a Robin Hood partnership with Plano ISD---where the San Angelo funds from WADA have been sold to that district. The money gained from that partnership can only be used for technology equipment. Thursday at the school board meeting, Glenmore Elementary principal Cheri Braden talked about the importance of technology in the schools. "We are living in a technology world today and as teachers, if we don't teach students how to use this technology, they're not going to be productive, students will not be productive citizens when they get out into the world." Also, at the meeting, the board considered compensation increases for district employees which would increase the pay for a first year teacher by 500 dollars and a general increase of 15 hundred dollars for returning teachers and some other employees in the district.
