Request For Student Computers

Request For Student Computers

A high school Drafting & Design teacher at Mt. Douglas Secondary recently reached out to see if our community can help. During COVID 19, his students must use home tech resources to continue with course work. In some cases, students do not have access to higher powered computers needed for CAD program design work and The School District is only authorizing loans of Chromebooks.

If you or someone you know is in a position to help, please see the computer requirements below:
