iPad Initiative

Why iPad?

After examining current implementations, visiting local school districts, examining BYOD data, piloting CAASPP viability, and visiting technology providers, including Apple, Google, and Microsoft, the District Technology Leadership Team determined the iPad was the best tool to support the district's educational technology vision. 

iPad provides transformative opportunities for students and staff to:

  • Access and evaluated a variety of informational resources
  • Explore content in engaging ways
  • Inspire creativity, productivity, and innovation
  • Communicate and collaborate
  •  Extent learning beyond the classroom and workplace
  • Contribute to society as responsible digital citizens

Creators and Curators

Students create and curate amazing work on the iPad!


For instance, Government students use iMovie, Green Screen, Adobe Voice, and Video Download to create multimedia presentations explaining an interesting piece of legislation, in this case Title IV and net neutrality.


Fourth graders strategize how to solve a math problem and explain their thinking using Explain Everything.  


History students use Notability to close read a speech and then analyze a quote in Textagon.
