SILER CITY, N.C. — North Carolina political leaders and Chatham County school representatives announced an $800,000 Golden LEAF grant Monday to purchase laptop computers for about 800 students at Jordan-Matthews High School.

“We are most appreciative that the Golden LEAF Foundation is supporting our laptop initiative in Chatham County Schools through this generous grant,” said Superintendent Robert Logan said.

The district has focused on technology as a way to get modern tools in the hands of modern learners, Logan said.

Students will receive laptops in early 2009.
