Adrian schools design customized iPad app for students

ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

One local school district is turning to technology to enhance learning.

Several districts are working to get iPads in the hands of their students, but Adrian Public Schools is taking that idea to the next level. They've been working with students and app developers to come up with a program tailored specifically to their district, and to their students' and teachers' needs.

Students will be able to do homework, take quizzes, view documents, and even see a calendar with due dates – all through the new app.

"This isn't just something that a programmer is sitting back writing," said Superintendent Chris Timmis. "This is something that our students and our staff are helping the programmers write, so it fits schools."

Funding for the iPads comes from a Federal School Improvement grant.

All students in the district will get their own iPad this fall.
