Cuero ISD trustees motion to reduce iPad fees

 

Getting ready for the coming school year was the theme of last week’s Cuero ISD board of trustees special meeting. Some of those discussions dealt with iPad fees, transportation costs and transfer students.

Those iPads were collected from the students at the end of the school year and are now being prepared for the start of school.
 
With that first year’s experience, district technology director Dale Norwood said fees for the iPads can be reduced for the coming school year.
