LA Unified gets lower price for thousands of iPads
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Unified School District is getting a break on the price of thousands of iPads, as it continues the rollout of a $1 billion plan to provide the tablets to all students.
The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday (http://lat.ms/1jSZ9g6 ) that under a deal with Apple, the district would save $200 each on iPads that will be used on new state tests, although the computers won’t include curriculum.
The revised price will be $504, which compares to $699 for the computers with curriculum. With taxes and other fees, the full cost of the more fully equipped devices rises to $768.
The districtwide rollout began at 47 schools in the fall.
There has been pressure to contain costs since reports surfaced that the district is paying more for devices than other school systems.
