Lincoln County School District receives BLM computers
ELY, Nev. – In late June, the Bureau of Land Management Ely District provided 86 desktop and 48 laptop computers, and related equipment to the Lincoln County School District.
“Having access to a computer plays a significant role in education. They provide the students with the opportunity to access information for increased learning and help educators organize lesson plans and report grades. I’m pleased that we were able to partner with the Lincoln County School District and provide them with this donation,” BLM Ely District Manager Robbie McAboy said.
The donation was made possible through the Computers for Learning program (CFL), which encourages agencies, to the extent permitted by law, to transfer computers and related peripheral equipment excess to their needs directly to schools and some educational nonprofit organizations. The CFL program specifically matches the computer needs of schools and educational nonprofit organizations with excess equipment in federal agencies.
The CFL program’s goal is to make modern computer technology an integral part of every classroom so that every child has the opportunity to be educated to his or her full potential. To learn more about the CFL program go to http://computersforlearning.gov/
