The teachers all received ipads and laptops last year in preparation for the students getting their ipads this year.  He says the program will also help the school toward their goal of going paperless.

The ipads were paid for using the school’s technology budget.  Reichert says they’re actually hoping to save money by going to the ipad system.  The students families also paid a technology fee to cover the cost of insuring the ipad against theft and damage.
