YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Students at Chaney STEM and Rayen Early College Middle School in Youngstown received iPads Tuesday morning.

The schools got 900 of the handheld tablets, worth over $1 million.

Teachers and students will be using the iPads in the classroom. Right now, they will not be going home with the students, but that may change in the future.

“The great thing about it is it’s not going to be something that is one size fits all. Each kid is going to be able to adapt according to his or her learning style and interest,” Principal Joe Krumpak said.

Krumpak says only 114 schools in the country received a grant from Apple to cover the iPads.
