Mt. Vernon district looks at new high school's $2M tech budget

Initial estimates are it may cost up to $2 million to equip the new proposed Mt. Vernon Township High School in Illinois with technology.

The estimate includes labor and equipment costs, but not computers, which will be leased separately.
