Pine Tree ISD students receive new iPads

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Want an iPad? Just attend Pine Tree High School and you'll get your wish.

Monday, Pine Tree High School received 400 iPads that will be given to current freshmen.

They are leasing the iPads for $47,000 a year for the next three years.

The students will keep the same iPad throughout high school and starting next year another, larger shipment, will provide students in all grades with an iPad.

"I'm extremely excited because it's going to make it easier for me to do things in class, because usually I have to use my older iPhone.” Preston Grissett, a Freshman who received an iPad, said.”This is a lot better, it's an easier way to learn and i'm really glad that we get these now."

The school has also organized a group of student they are calling 'iDoctors' who will help fix any technical issues throughout the year.
