Rock Hill schools will hold an information meeting for anyone interested in learning about iRock, Superintendent Lynn Moody’s push to get an iPad to every student to enhance learning.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the district’s central office training room, 660 N. Anderson Road.
Moody has said she believes it’s critical for schools to embrace mobile devices, which can enable “project-based” lessons.
District officials are fleshing out a plan to move ahead with the initiative. So far they have proposed paying to lease iPads for three-year blocks and charging families an annual fee to offset part of the cost. Some of the money would come from fundraising and cutting costs elsewhere in the district.
Students would be free to take the tablet devices home in the afternoons and over the summer. The leases would include insurance that covers damage.
For details on the meeting, call the district at 803-981-1008.
