Buckingham Elementary is the first elementary school to start to hand out the devices.


Parents and students have come in the last couple nigths to get training and to sign "acceptable use" agreements for the IPads.


Every third through fifth grader at Buckingham will get one of the electronic devices to use at school and take home.


Buckingham Principal Skip Offenhauser.


"No other schools to my knowledge this side of the Cascades are doing this.  So kudos to the district administration and board.  This is very visionary.  This will actually help redue textbook costs, because textbooks will be downloaded onto the IPads.  Also these kids are getting full functionality of these comptuers in the student's hands.  Pretty amazing."


Other elementary schools in the distridt involved in the program wil  be rolling out in the coming weeks.


The district has added additional security software to the IPads that teachers will activate.  It will prevent kids form adding additional APS or going on certain websites.
