|Grant allows for free computer help for county residents|
|BRIDGEPORT - Lawrence County residents in need of computer use or computer-related assistance will now have another place within the county to receive free help. |
The Red Hill Unit 10 school corporation recently received an "Eliminate the Digital Divide" grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce to open a Technology Learning Center at the high school.
"The lab will be open so people that need access to computers, internet and printing will have it all available to them. It's open for students and adults so it doesn't matter how old you are," Assistant Technology Director Tammy Parker said. "We've found there are several people in the county that don't have access to computers or internet."
The grant enabled the school to purchase 30 new Macintosh computers that Parker said will be loaded with all the necessary programs.
The lab can be accessed through the main doors at the high school from 3:45-6 p.m. on weekdays. There will be a monitor on duty at all times to help with any needs.
A basic computer class focusing on employment skills will also be taught twice a week from 4-6 p.m. beginning Sept. 29.
Registration for the free class will begin Wednesday online at www.red.lawrnc.k12.il.us or by picking up a form at the Red Hill Jr./Sr. High Office. The class is also free to attend.
