Briefl00: Cape takes advantage of state technology plan The Cape Henlopen School District, considered to be rich in technology and set to upgrade the electrical infrastructure to support it all, has taken advantage of a state offer to share costs for future technological purchases on a 60- 40 basis with the district. In a unanimous school board vote, March 9, the district agreed to participate in the state&apos;s cost- sharing program that will bring upgraded software and hardware to the district over the next three years. With more than $100,000 of un- committed money available in the district's matching tax account, board members agreed to use $76,547 of that money to put with the state's $114,821 for a total of $191,368 for technology buys during the first year of the three- year matching fund program. In recent years, Cape has com- mitted as much as $200,000 just for technology in its annual budg- ets. This program, board members agreed, would greatly lessen the need for high local funding expen- ditures over the next three years. Families sought for student exchange Students from three countries not previously represented by the American Intercultural Student Exchange Inc. (AISE) will be par- ticipating in this year's program, AISE officials said. Mongolia, South Korea and Turkey have been added to the list of over 20 other countries sending students to the United States through this program. Host families are being sought to provide food and housing for the exchange students during their stay in the United States.
