Farmington School District has started a new technology initiative where every student will receive an iPad for learning, the Pioneer Press reports.
The initial rollout of the iPad initiative began this week when 1,900 students received the touch screen devices. More than 3,500 more are on order, and younger students will receive them as well early next year.
When all the iPads have been issued, every one of Farmington's 6,700 students will have one, reports the paper.
Each iPad comes with a loan agreement that must be signed by students and parents. The agreement includes insurance, plus there are rules on how the iPads can be used in school and at home.
Farmington's one-to-one technology initiative will cost the district $3 million over the next four years through a lease agreement with Apple, the Pioneer Press says.
