The Butler Area School District will be purchasing a 530 iPads to help with reading instruction at elementary levels. The devices would be used to support reading interventions in 1st through 6th grades and the request for bids would also include professional development resources to help teachers learn how to make the best use of the equipment. The iPads will be paid for using Federal Title 1 money that has already been allotted to the district this year.
And this is why BASD is broke, STUPID spending. You can get a comparable tablet for $50.00.
