St. Paul Schools to Hand Out iPads to Students

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The St. Paul school district plans to hand out iPads to all students.

The district signed a $4.3 million contract with Dell in 2012. But after a year of working with Dell, district officials decided they weren’t going to get the system they wanted and cancelled the contract without penalty.

Now, the district is finishing up a deal with Apple to loan iPads to all 39,000 students over the next two school years. There’s no price tag for that effort, yet.

Among the other school districts in the state that have handed out iPads are Farmington, Rochester, Virginia, Watertown-Mayer, Wayzata and Spring Lake Park.

The district would be largest in the state to put iPads in the hands of all students.
