The district this year purchased 300 iPads using funds from Title I, a federal program initiated by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to provide financial assistance to schools whose students are largely from low-income families.
The one-to-one iPad initiative is part of a district-wide effort to integrate technology throughout elementary and middle school classrooms. Sixth-graders have had one-to-one laptop access for several years, while junior high students have shared a limited number of iPads and laptops since last year.
