FAIRBANKS - Some surplus computers from the U.S. Senate will find new homes in Alaska.
U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski announced Tuesday that five schools will receive the equipment. The schools are in Tanana, Slana, Yakutat, Hydaburg and Klukwan.
They will receive five computers each as part of the U.S. Senate Computer for Schools Program.
The Alaska Republican said the schools were chosen based on the compatibility of the computers. Also, schools where it was determined that a donation of five computers would have a major impact on students academic achievement were given preference.
