Few bugs reported with schools’ iPad programs




Nearly a year after more than 3,000 local students got shiny new iPads to use at school, most of the devices are still intact.

About 100 students in Center Grove and Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson schools have dropped and broken the screens on their school-issued iPads or accidentally snapped cords off in the device’s port. School officials knew when they gave the high school and middle school students the devices that some of them would break, which is why they have spare devices ready to give students to use while theirs are being repaired, technical directors Julie Bohnenkamp and Perry Ellington said.

Center Grove’s technology department can repair the broken screens themselves, while Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson sends the broken iPads to a local repair shop to be fixed, the technology directors said.
