BOISE -- One third of Idaho's school districts were in Boise Monday, highlighting all the things they have accomplished in the Idaho Leads Program.

Students, faculty and staff from 49 Idaho school districts and charter schools gathered at the Egyptian Theater, Monday night.

The program, funded by the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, helps students and teachers incorporate technology into the classroom.

A bunch of us are going into college here soon and everything is online and iPads and all of the technology and if we can learn how to use it to our advantage before the end of high school, I think that we'll be able to succeed better, said Vallivue High School Senior McKenzie Forsberg.

Student representatives showed other districts what they have been working on for the last 18-months, and exchange ideas within the program.
