Students In Little Falls To Get IPads
Beginning next school year, every fifth through 12th-grade student in the Little Falls school district will have an Apple iPad.
The Brainerd Dispatch reported that earlier this week, the Little Falls school board unanimously allocated more than $1 million for a three-year lease on 1,450 iPads and accompanying software.
The district is planning on charging a technology fee for all students when they get their iPads. The fee may be $40 each.
School board chair Robert Stoltman said that few Minnesota school districts are using iPads and that having a small town like Little Falls commit to using them is an accomplishment.
