Farmington school board OKs final iPad lease


The Farmington School District is making plans to get its last big shipment of iPads for students despite concerns from some school board members that things are moving too fast.

Board members voted Monday to approve the three-year leases on nearly 2,000 iPad minis for the district's elementary school students. The lease is the fourth board members have approved and the last step in its efforts to put a tablet computer in the hands of every district student.
