This particular station has the computer fixed on the lower left, the keyboard tray which is pulled out, and moved up or down. The mouse tray slides sideways and rotates to the student’s desired position. The monitor is under glass and is angled for a perfect direct view and does not obstruct the student’s visibility to the front or sides of the classroom. The glare shield is optional and will be set aside during note-taking and writing.
