HAMPTON -- Hampton City Public Schools will introduce a pilot program next semester linking students to technology called One To One Technology Initiative.

The program is designed to put digital tools in the hands of Hampton fifth and seventh graders.

'Fifth graders because they are young but on the verge of middle school,' said spokesperson Diana Gulotta. 'And seventh graders because they are in transition from studies to social life.'

Hampton City Council approved $2 million to launch the program.

A committee will decide which digital tool they want the students to have.
