CHOWCHILLA, Calif. (AP) - A California high school teacher is under fire for donating laptops to her students.

The Fresno Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1KcWKGu ) that Chowchilla Union High School English teacher Kim Kutzner and her husband used their own money to buy 90 computers, but school officials initially removed them from the classroom.

They expressed concern that the equipment wasn’t purchased and approved by the district.

The computers have been returned to Kutzner’s classroom. Superintendent Ron Seals says they’re allowed until the board makes a final decision.

Chowchilla Union Principal Justin Miller says the district must make sure the devices follow rules and regulations set up to protect student data and keep the teenagers safe.



Kutzner insists the computers are safe and have no internet connection. She says the technology has improved student morale and test scores.
