CHAMPAIGN -- District leaders are partnering with a company from the University of Illinois research park to bring new technology to schools. Unit 4 School Board members met with people from Enterprise Works to discuss what kinds of technology they already use and explore ideas for the future.

Superintendent Judy Weigand says technology is a vital part of their school day experience and helps them prepare for life after graduation. Some students in the district use E-toys to learn how to program. They also take specific computer science classes when they're a little older.
