Shawnee Mission board approves $19 million for laptops, iPads for students
Shawnee Mission Superintendent Jim Henson, formerly superintendent at East Newton and Independence, says he has learned from the mistakes of other school districts who have done this. Shawnee Mission is buying equipment for every student. Those above third grade will get to take theirs home. Middle schoolers will have IPads, while high school students will receive laptops.
