State funding for early education restored but services this year could still

first_imgFrommherz said she and her staff are working to open all classrooms in September, but it will be a scramble. Reinstating bus services will be a particular challenge, she said, because they’ve already gotten out of their contracts. “Plans have been put in place that it’s hard to walk back from, because this was such a disruption,” she said. Juneau School District had hoped to add preschool classrooms this year. But with the start of the school year just around the corner, superintendent Bridget Weiss said that’s off the table for now.

Mike Dunleavy agreed Tuesday to restore funding for early education in Alaska. But educators in Juneau say that even with funding back in place, services this year could be affected. But if it’s too late to add an entire preschool classroom, Weiss said the restored state funding gives the district more room to expand services in other ways. That could include more full-day and after-school preschool programs. Weiss said those changes could happen this school year. Tlingit and Haida Head Start director Amber Frommherz said the funding reversal is good news — but it’s not yet certain if all services will be restored. The Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska, which operates 15 Head Start classrooms around Southeast, planned to respond to those cuts by closing three classrooms and discontinuing bus services. “It’s very disruptive to the system to try to do that and find a teacher and move forward right now with expanding a classroom,” Weiss said. In June, the governor vetoed nearly $9 million for Head Start and early learning programs from the state operating budget. The first day of preschool at Juneau schools is Aug. 27. Tlingit and Haida Head Start classrooms will open in early September.last_img read more

User dawn11180 took to the Tom’s Guide forums with this very question.”I am off to college in a month and I am looking for a budget friendly 2-in-1 laptop for drawing. It’s a hobby, so I don’t need a professional quality laptop. So I am looking for something that can run Photoshop and overall Windows 10. I am not very smart when it comes to specs, I am only a student so I guess keep in mind that my needs are not that high. I would really like it if the laptop supported the wacom pen cause I own one that I love a lot. My budget is $1,000 at the absolute most. Thanks in advance.”Don’t worry, dawn11180; we’ve got you covered. We’re going to take you through several choices of 2-in-1 laptops. But first, let’s talk about your favorite Wacom pen.

It also offers up to 4,098 levels of pressure sensitivity depending on the device.Best 2-in-1s for DrawingLet’s start off with the Lenovo Yoga 720, a 15.6-inch 2-in-1 with an Intel Core i5-7300HQ processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU with 2GB of VRAM, all for just $849. That translates to speedy performance, decent storage space and the ability to run some AAA titles, like Rise of the Tomb Raider. Additionally, the battery can last up to 9 hours, and the display is especially crisp and vibrant.Something that might be more comfortable for drawing is a detachable like the Microsoft Surface Pro, which starts at $799 or $719 for students, parents, teachers and military personnel. It starts with a 7th Gen Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and an Intel HD 615 graphics card.MORE: Best Laptops for College StudentsIt’s less powerful than the Yoga, and it can be more expensive, considering that the keyboard is a separate $159 purchase. The battery life is also a little shorter, at 7:30. However, the Surface Pro has a brighter and more colorful display, its 12.3-inch size makes it more portable and it has multiple configurations if you really want more speed. There’s also the Surface Pro’s kid brother, the Surface Go ($399), which is a smaller, cheaper and even less powerful version of the Surface.If you decide to go all out, the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 will serve you well with its Intel Core i5-8305G CPU, 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD and Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU with 4GB of VRAM. It’s the most powerful of the bunch, and boasts lovely, thin bezels accompanied by an even more colorful display than those on the Yoga and the Surface Pro. But it starts at $1,299, putting it out of your budget.We hope this helps you on your artistic journey, dawn11180.
