iPads Coming to Wellesley Schools, Parents Not Paying

School Committee revises iPad plan, parents don't pay and tablets stay at school, YourTown reports.

 

While Wellesley students may be learning on iPads soon, their parents may not have be picking up the tab.

At a recent School Committee meeting, the Committee revised its iPad program proposal, according to a YourTown Wellesley report. Under the original proposal, students would bring their iPads home with them and pay for renting them. Under the new proposal, the iPads would stay at school.

The Wellesley Public School website has updated its information on the iPad program, indicating that funding for the program can come from the Wellesley Education Foundation, school parent-teacher organizations, and some changes to the school budget.

For about a year, some students at the Schofield Elementary School have been using iPads. With the support of the Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF), the district pulled together a pilot 1:1 tablet program, under which every student uses an iPad in the classroom.
