According to Cooley, students in Laura Arena’s RTI, Response to Intervention classroom, will have use of them, for the rest of this year, since COVID-19 has prohibited students from using the lab. Mu Upsilon Chapter was able to purchase the iPads using funds received from ASTEF, Alpha State Texas Educational Foundation of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. COURTESY PHOTO I SILSBEE BEE
