Mobile Education iPad Funding

iPads for all high school students? How will we pay for this? One goal our community has given us is to do more. As we continue to evaluate the district’s budget to find cost savings, we look for different ways that may potentially give us savings for the future. By looking at our district five-year textbook, supplies, and materials costs, we average approximately $150,000 per year to purchase textbooks. The IPads four-year annual cost is approximately $74,000. By using a portion of the textbook funding for the purchase of the iPads, we will have the potential to save. We will also be reallocating Title I funding to help offset the overall yearly cost. The potential savings are clearly evident.

Savings from the program may include the reduction of student fees, less paper usage, and - potentially - getting some of our students who go elsewhere back into the district.
