AAPS seeks a tech renewal

posted 5/8/2012

"The problem now is with our software upgrades," says Ann Arbor Public Schools spokeswoman Liz Margolis. "These computers don't support the new software."

The AAPS has 8,000 or so computers, mostly Apple Macs. Students use them for everything from reading programs in elementary school to sophisticated research projects in high school. Now, however, a change Apple made six years ago is catching up with the district. The current versions of Microsoft Word and Excel, among others, won't run on Macs built before 2006.
