"They might get harder but it gives us a chance to be more creative and go beyond what we're expected to because we'll have the available technology." - Platteview sophomore, Colleen Anderson
South Sarpy County schools are joining the ranks of those using Apple iPads in the classroom. Starting next year, each student in grades seven through 12 will get an iPad to use the entire school year. Elementary students will share iPads - one for every two students.
