What's the "Low-Cost Laptop" bill?


The Children's Low-Cost Laptop Act (House Bill 5000) would allow up to 300 elementary schools in Illinois to receive grant funding for low-cost (under $400) laptops. Support for professional development (teacher training), school infrastructure readiness and laptop repair are accounted for in the bill.


At least one-third of the selected schools must be from the City of Chicago; at least one-third from the collar counties, and at least one-third from the remainder of the state.
