Voters in Ludington are deciding Tuesday, May 8th whether to pay for an iPad for every student in Ludington Public Schools. School officials are asking for a $10 million dollar bond that would pay for the program for about 15 years.
The district wants to use the devices school wide after a successful pilot program in two elementary classrooms, kindergarten and second grade. Under the plan, student iPads would be replaced every three-to-five years.
Ludington is one of many northern Michigan school districts asking voters to support technology, building improvements and other needs through voting today. Polls close at 8pm Tuesday night.
