Apple Awarded $30 Million iPad Deal From L.A. Unified School District

Apple has won a $ 30 million contract from the Los Angeles Unified School District to begin providing an iPad to every student at the nation’s second-largest public school district. “The Board voted unanimously for Apple because iPad rated the best in quality, was the least expensive option, and received the highest scoring by the review panel that included students and teachers,” said Deputy Superintendent Jaime Aquino. Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, Philip Schiller, said: “Education is in Apple’s DNA and we’re thrilled to work with Los Angeles Unified public schools on this major initiative as they plan to roll out iPads to every student across 47 campuses this fall.”
