School of the Osage continues to enhance the learning experience for students through the use of I-Pads, some twelve-hundred of them being distributed between the different grade levels. Superintendent Doctor Brent Depee says the program has been a success so far but not without some bugs still to iron out.
The biggest questions raised by parents center around how kids are using the devices and what kinds of controls are put in place preventing kids from deviating off the program. Doctor Depee also says the need to pay insurance to protect the $600 I-Pad’s was another concern. He calls that $30 insurance a small price to pay to keep the program available in the future.
