Oak Ridge Schools Superintendent Bruce Borchers told BOE members on Monday this latest purchase would be enough for all ninth- and 10th-grade students to obtain devices.

...
Borchers said there were four responses to the request for bids that the school district advertised in The Oak Ridger and other media outlets. The vendor for the devices - and lowest bidder according to a memo from Borchers to the school board - is Personal Computer Systems Inc. of nearby Louisville, Tenn. School board member Angi Agle asked if there was a way for parents to purchase laptops at the Oak Ridge school district's prices, and Borchers said there was and he would send that information to the Board of Education members. On Tuesday, Borchers also shared with The Oak Ridger that the devices are Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e laptops that can convert to a tablet device.

As Oak Ridge Schools Superintendent Bruce Borchers closed his presentation on the Seven Keys program, he pointed out that the seventh and final key was the most important to the students in the district. "Key seven is the most important," he said. "It gives students a pathway to a good job." Borchers also pointed out that the availability of low-income housing in Oak Ridge has changed the demographics of the district over the years. Despite that, the district has maintained its high standards and expectations. "Of the ORHS students who last took the ACT," Borchers said, "Two scored perfect scores, 60 percent scored over 22 and 93 scored more than 30." McQueen told those assembled that Oak Ridge Schools used its data properly and created a pathway for the district and the students. "It's the pathway you should be on," she said. When she asked how she could help, many in the room seemed to agree that help in achieving the seventh key was the best way her office could help. Borchers used the advanced manufacturing class as an example. "Without a grant we couldn't have got those expensive machines to help prepare those students," he said. Another concern expressed was the difficulty the district has had in bringing a military Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) to the district. McQueen said she wasn't aware of the difficulties, but would do what she could to help. Borchers told her the Southeast is saturated with ROTC programs and the focus is to spread the programs out nationwide. Oak Ridge Board of Education Chairman Keys Fillauer asked for McQueen to allow districts to better support their teachers. "Give teachers the opportunity to stay on the same path for a long enough period of time to make an impact on the students," he said.
