PARIS, TX - Classrooms in one Paris school district are getting an upgrade into the 21st century.
Chisum ISD school board approved the purchase of 225 iPads to engage students K-12 in new technology.
The $74,000 spent on buying the iPads is being split up, half from the district's budget and the other half from a non designated fund balance. Chisum administration hopes this is the first step in bringing new technology to students.
"Eventually we can expand the use of iPads in classrooms to all students, to all the teachers and eventually move toward a paperless school district." said assistant superintendent, Tommy Chalaire.
Chisum ordered the iPads yesterday and administration hopes to get them in classrooms before the end of the school year.
