It was the first day of school in Maryland's Montgomery County. Teachers didn't waste any time using the new technology given them at William Gibbs Elementary school in Germantown.

The brand new 22-million dollar school is named for Gibbs, an African-American teacher who sued in the 1930's over a county policy that paid black teachers far less then white teachers. Gibbs elementary will serve students that previously went to Cedar Grove, Clarksburg, and Little Bennett elementary.
