Middle school students at Avon Middle-High School are now using iPads in the classroom, thanks to a grant from the Prone Family Foundation. The foundation gave the school district $8,975 for iPads this fall, and the district matched the amount, according to school principal Elizabeth York. The 25 iPads travel on a cart from classroom to classroom and are used mainly to help individual students get either remedial help or advanced course content, she said. “They are so wonderful,” she said of the devices. “This is in the first cart in the classroom, and I hope the first of many.” Avon Middle-High School has about 350 students in grades seven through 12.
