LITTLE FALLS (AP) – The Little Falls School District is embracing Apple’s iPad as a teaching tool and by the start of the next school year every fifth- through 12th- grade student in the district will have one.

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 plans to charge a technology fee for all students when they get their iPads in the beginning of the 2011-12 school year. The fee may be $40 each.

School board chair Robert Stoltman says few Minnesota school districts are using iPads and having a small town like Little Falls commit to using them is an accomplishment.
