Willmar, Minn., School Board sets iPad policy for fall


WILLMAR -- Willmar juniors and seniors will each pay a $50 annual rental fee when they are issued Apple iPads in September.

The Willmar School Board adopted a policy and a student/parent handbook for iPad use at school. A public hearing was held on the policy, but there were no comments.

The rental fee will be required of all students, and the district will have a payment plan available for families that need them, said Superintendent Jerry Kjergaard.
