iPads coming to Dougherty County classrooms

Posted: Updated:

Some Dougherty County students will see new technology in their classrooms.

Wednesday, the School Board unanimously agreed to use some federal grant money to buy 120 iPads.

It will cost almost $83,000.

Board member Darrel Ealum says it's an investment that will pay off.

"With the iPads students can communicate from student to student, from student to parent, from student to teacher. It's awesome and that's where we're going. We're going to a paperless teaching environment and it's going to empower that student."

The iPads should be in schools in about a month.
