Tulsa middle school getting a special computer donation

Updated:
Some Tulsa middle school students will kick off the new year with some new tools to get ahead. More than 100 computers are heading to Cleveland Middle School. But they're not for the school library or the classrooms.

News on 6 anchor Terry Hood has more on a new program that's putting the power of computers directly in the hands of students.

Computers are becoming more and more important to your child's education. At the same time, some say the digital divide or the gap between folks who have computers and those who don't is getting wider. This year, one local organization is trying to bridge that gap for students at Cleveland Middle School.

PC Power is a local non-profit organization that turns old computers into new opportunities for Tulsa's less fortunate. Tulsa Police officer Glenn DeWeese started the group last year. He's taken close to 200 computers and made them like new again. About 125 of these recycled computers will get new homes with Cleveland 6th graders.

Along with the computer, PC Power is also working on getting students free Internet access. It’s a tool Cleveland's principal says will make a big difference in her students' education.
