Say goodbye to 10 pounds of heavy uninteractive textbooks; say hello to iPad A Maine school system may be adding the iPad 2 to its list of mandatory kindergarten classroom items, with the district footing the bill. The Auburn Schools Committee voted unanimously to provide all kindergartners with an iPad 2 next year. Each subsequent kindergarten class would receive individual devices as well, CNN and WGME report. It would cost the district about $200,000 next year, with Apple cutting them a deal by charing $475 per iPad. Superintendent Tom Morrill says the district will find the money in the budget and through grants.
