dc.description At Piedmont City School District, in rural northeast Alabama, technology is viewed as a tool for raising expectations in a town hit by poverty and hardship. This case study profiles the mPower Piedmont initiative, through which all students in grades 4-12 receive a laptop with home Internet access despite many ongoing challenges typical of rural districts like Piedmont: a limited and ever-changing budget, the area’s lack of broadband infrastructure, and a small staff. en_US
