HAMILTON COUNTY, TN. (Times Free Press) -- Hamilton County Schools officials hope to put iPads in the hands of all 42,000 of its students over the next few years.
Administrators are exploring funding options for a massive technology buy to help bring the district up to speed by 2014, when all Tennessee school districts will have to complete state assessments online.
That means schools will have to upgrade computers, tablets and their technological infrastructure by then to support online tests. And depending on just how out of date schools are, the cost could amount to hundreds of millions statewide.
