SIKESTON -- Two years into its three-year districtwide technology plan, Sikeston R-6 has already received six times the amount it initially spent to get a project started.

Michelle Gilmer, R-6 technology coordinator, provided the Board of Education with a follow-up report to the district's 2008-2011 technology plan during Tuesday's monthly meeting.
