Ordering Laptops

The Dubuque Community School District ordered almost 1,700 laptops to distribute to students from second to fifth grade. Before the start of the school year, the district had only received 490 units.School officials said the delay is due to a nationwide shortage prompted by the pandemic.They said they are hoping to receive those laptops by early December, which would allow them to get the laptops ready and hand them out to students before Winter Break.A school official tells us they had to make some decisions on who got the limited number of laptops that arrived before August.
