MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Mandan High School plans to give each student an iPad to use for his or her studies, beginning next year.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1ScX3q8 ) it’s part of a plan to provide one computing device to each of the district’s 3,600 students.

The district will pay $400 for each of the 1,000 iPads, for a total bill of $400,000. Assistant Superintendent Jeff Lind says the district will reallocate money it normally would spend on other types of computers, so the purchase will be “close to budget neutral.”

The school district already has nearly 2,000 iPads, mainly at elementary schools. They were bought with federal dollars designated to help low-income students. Lind says the district plans to buy iPads for its middle school students to use during the 2017-18 school year.
