Auburn kindergartners to get computers
The city of Auburn will be giving iPad2 computers to each kindergartner this fall.
The city's School Committee approved the plan Wednesday. Former Governor Angus King, who attended the school meeting, says Auburn could be the first municipality in the state to give computers to all students in a single grade. The Auburn School Superintendent says he's expecting 285 kindergarten students this fall, which will translate to an expected cost of about $200,000.
