Poplar Bluff high school students begin classes with new laptops

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

All senior high school students in Poplar Bluff, Missouri began classes on Thursday with new MacBooks instead of text books.

It's part of the school's digital conversion program.

The district began the program with junior high students last year. Students and teachers say they're excited to have the MacBooks because it lightens the load in students' backpacks.

Meanwhile, plans for expansions are in the process of being finalized. Construction on that is expected to start next summer.
