Lower Merion students say district laptops have limits outside school

    Students in Lower Merion School District are reporting access issues at home on their district-issued laptops.

    At a Board of Directors meeting Monday night, students from Lower Merion and Harriton high schools said they’ve been unable to access some educational websites on the laptops while at home, but have had no issues at school.

    Narberth-Bala Cynwyd Patch reports LMHS student Charlie Li explained to the board he and classmates have been unable to use the laptops — issued at the start of the school year — to get some educationally appropriate websites while in their houses. The board apologized and says the district is working out the bugs created by the new restrictions.
