MAMMOTH SPRING, AR (KAIT) -

A school district in Fulton County will be among those to get more technology.

Mammoth Spring School District is among 5 schools to get 5 computers each, according to a news release from U.S. Senator John Boozman.

The tech comes from the U.S. Senate’s Computers for Schools program which helps "public schools stay connected in the digital age by donating computers no longer used in the Senate for use in their classrooms."

“The Mammoth Spring School District would like to thank Senator John Boozman's office for the generous donation of computers for use in our classrooms. These computers will replace some of the outdated computers that are currently in our elementary classrooms. We only have a handful of Windows XP machines left on our campus and this will help alleviate the security risks that they impose,” said Joy Underwood, technology coordinator for Mammoth Spring School District, as part of the news release.

Other schools receiving computers are:

  • Lee High School in Marianna
  • County Line School in Branch
  • Lafayette County High School in Stamps
  • Bradley High School in Bradley
