Georgia school district looking to get 63,000 iBooks

Georgia’s Cobb County wants Apple to provide laptops (presumably iBooks) to more than 63,000 teachers and students in what would be one of the largest such programs in the country, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “System officials Monday acknowledged the choice, but declined further comment until Wednesday–including the multimillion-dollar price tag. Board members will be asked for approval next month, when the first of three phases of the program comes before them for a vote. On March 9, they will be asked to approve a program to provide laptops to all the district’s teachers this spring. They will also be asked to approve money to set up four school demonstration sites in the fall. The second phase will be to provide the computers to high school students in early 2006, and the third and final phase will be to provide the computers to middle school students.”
