Happy Valley Elementary School in Lafayette is making a big step in the push toward bringing new technology into classrooms for educational opportunities. The school’s Parents Club is planning to use reserve funds to purchase 30 new iPads for the school and teachers.

The 30 iPads will be used in the school’s library for special activities with students, but the school’s teachers will also be allowed to check out the iPads for use in their classrooms.

The Parents Club sees the purchasing of the iPads as a way to “innovate and augment the delivery of curriculum .”

Future technology purchases for the school will be done strictly through LPIE.

    grat stuff, more opportunities for kids to check their facebook page!

    seriously, glad to see the district experimenting with how new tech can aid in the education of our kids…as long as it is reasonably controlled so as not to end up with another vehicle to surf the web…
