Stephanie, do your kids bring home a laptop? It sounds like all of the high school students in our district are required to. It should be interesting to hear what that's all about. Lillianne mentioned a $500 rental fee.
At our high school, no they don't. Zach & Isaac have ipads at the school they go to. Their program was started by Bill & Melinda Gates, it has a lot of grants and we didn't have to pay for the ipads. If they break them we do have to pay a 50.00 deductable.
