  • CHARLESTOWN, Ind. — A southern Indiana city plans to provide laptop computers to all 1,200 high school and middle school students in the community.

    The One-to-One computer program will be unveiled to parents Monday evening at Charlestown High School.

    Former Charlestown High booster club president Chris Grayson says the computers will increase job opportunities for students.

    Greater Clark County schools interim superintendent Travis Haire says the district is still working of financing to lease the laptops, which could cost about $300,000 over four years.

    In addition to the free laptops, the city about 15 miles northeast of Louisville, Ky., plans to install a number of wireless hot spots and a community computer lab.
