Split school board OKs iPads

Havre's Board of Trustees took the advice of Apple Inc.'s late-1990's slogan, Think Different, while purchasing 500 of the company's iPad computers for next school year.

The final 4-2 vote came at the end of a long and thorough discussion at Tuesday night's meeting that itself followed a months-long debate about how to keep Havre Public Schools from falling behind the state and nation.

The discussion was preceded by a presentation from Jackie Rygg, the district's tech specialist, and Rebecca Reno, Havre High School biology teacher, on how the devices could change the way schools teach.
