/// L.A. Unified School District Wants iPads for All 640,000 Students

July 26, 2013  |  All Things Digital


Back in June, the Los Angeles Unified School District awarded Apple a $30 million contract to provide its students with iPads. Under its terms, the company will supply about 31,000 iPads to 47 LAUSD schools, each preloaded with a bunch of educational software. But evidently that’s just the first phase of the program. According to an LAUSD representative, the nation’s second-largest school district hopes to provide iPads to all 640,000 students by late 2014 . Which means it’s going to buy a few hundred thousand more iPads over the next year — though it’s not yet sure how it’s going to do it. “We’re hoping that we will get a lot of private donors,” Mark Hovatter, chief facilities executive for LAUSD, told CITEworld. That’s very good news for Apple
