Incoming Piute High students will drop the books and hit their iPads instead to study this year.
This fall, Piute County School District will give each freshman an iPad assigned by serial number to take them throughout their high school education. The 2011-2012 school year is the beginning of the district's implementation of their new digital curriculum for iPads, paid for by the Innovative Technology grant. For the next four years, freshmen will receive the devices at the beginning of the year and by 2014 every student at Piute High will be a part of the program.
