Arlington students to get iPads
Arlington public schools will use a $70,000 donation to buy more iPads for its elementary school and career center students, the Washington Examiner reports.
The Children’s Fund of Metropolitan Washington gave the school system the grant to support the Virginia Department of Education’s “Beyond Textbooks” initiative, which stresses digital technology in the classroom.
The district will buy 120 iPads to be shared among students at Barret, Carlin Springs and Randolph elementary schools and the Arlington Career Center — schools chosen because more than 51 percent of students receive free or reduced-price lunch and more than 48 percent have limited English proficiency.
