TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - The Tupelo Public School District has added student computers and safety upgrades from April’s successful bond referendum.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1SC84Bu ) the district has purchased about 1,000 Chromebook laptops that will be used by students at Tupelo Middle School.

It also approved bids to add security cameras, fire alarms and burglar alarms on several campuses and to add a security film on entrances and windows throughout the district.

The district’s school board accepted the winning bids for those projects during meetings held on Thursday and Friday as part of the annual Board retreat. They will be funded by the $44 million bond issue approved by voters.
