Hayfield school board An iPad for every student approved

By Tara Lindquist

The Hayfield School Board made the unanimous decision to implement a new technology initiative during their meeting on Monday, February 11.

The board voted to spend $120,000 in the upcoming capital outlay budget to start the iPad for every student program. The first investment will cover all of the high school staffs' iPads, training, cases, insurance, technology equipment upgrades and additional technical support for the summer of 2013. "It's a significant investment but it's the right thing for our students," Ron Evjen explained to the Board. "I would strongly encourage you to approve this capitol outlay plan." The district will implement the next phase of their iPad project in the 2014-2015 school year when all students in grades 7 - 12 will be equipped with their own iPad. The elementary school staff will receive their iPads during the 2015-2016 school year and the students, theirs in the 2016-2017 school year.

Other items budgeted in the capital outlay plan for the upcoming school year include roof repair at the Brownsdale building, library materials and equipment at both elementary schools, and new music books for the Hayfield Elementary School. The district voted to spend $172,000 in capital outlay projects.

Other items on the agenda included the approval of the FFA land rent agreement which will cost $900, the approval of the District's vision, mission and aims statements, enrollment update and a presentation from the 1st grade teachers.

The Board will meet again on Monday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in the Hayfield High School Library.
