From an e-mail I received from Mr. Romine on this subject:
"There will be no changes concerning judges being allowed to use laptops to flow or take notes for this upcoming school year. We hope your judges who use these will continue to support our program and our schools in a very positive educational endeavor. Certainly, as always, we do expect all judges to take the time to write constructive comments and items for improvement on the ballot. This is a responsibility of any judge regardless of how they flow or take notes."
