Unisys Corp. has donated $40,000 in computer equipment to the Davis School District's alternative high school to help the students improve their reading skills, the computer firm says.
The equipment including a computer, five work stations and software will guide students at Mountain High School through basic reading skills such as visual matching and reading aloud, said Larry Culler, a regional product manager for Uni-sys."Everybody starts at the beginning," Culler said. "You don't really know at what point there's a missing link" that has prevented students from progressing in their reading skills.
An orientation to the equipment and software, developed by a Canadian reading specialist, was conducted Wednesday, said principal Betty Brand.
