There is no "their Internet." It's THE internet. I think you mean the school district has controls on their gateway to it.

Where is the Manatee Springs School District?

"There is no telling what kind of impact this program will have on the Estes Park School District, but it's bound to be a positive one." If you say so.

LOL!! Once again the Trail Gazette proves it is barely above a third world publication!
One can only surmise that their spell check did not include "Manitou" and they just accepted the first recommended substitute.
Oh now I get it

Manatee "school district" is not a large group/school of mammals that swim in the sea:) Manitou is around Colorado Springs and has a "school" district too. The good old Trail Gazette.

does not matter where you live journalistic integrity should be a protocol for all newspapers which includes accuracy and correct spelling. The touchy, feely why do you bit-- and moan stuff is what dumbs down America. Boo hoo. Get a moral compass.

You invested all this money in the device, but you still have to buy electronic text books! And not all of the text book publishing companies offer their textbooks electronically yet.

Is the district providing filtering of websites when the student takes the iPad offsite? They are required to. Wonder if they thought about that.

I work in IT, and I love IT. But this rush to put iPads in the hands of every student is simply putting the cart before the horse. Yes, one day everything is going to be electronic, but standards need to be set and met first.

In my opinion, this is not money well spent.
Gosh what a surprise

Town and school not spending money wisely. As far as comment from dipsh** #5 above, you are not paying anything for it, so (a) you are getting exactly what you pay for and (b) you can go somewhere else to get your news if these errors cause you so much distress. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. If you don't understand this, it means you have a little mind, that is, a small mind, that is, you are stupid. Seems like you just like to complain, another sure sign of someone who isn't very intelligent.

Android tablets are cheaper than iPad. But iPad is very popular and it is being promoted everywhere. http://bit.ly/xaKije

Cheaper than iPad. But if everyone took a bunch of asprin and cleared up their migrain, they would soon see this proposal, if that it what this POS is, is bat crap crazy.
