Mansfield ISD High School iPad Program

The Mansfield ISD Strategic Plan calls for the use of innovative and inspiring teaching methods.” 

An important step toward creating 21st Century learning environments took place in the fall semester of 2012. Over 10,000 iPads were deployed to Mansfield ISD high school teachers and students.

We want to continue to build on our commitment to provide innovative educational opportunities. On Tuesday, May 22, 2012 the School Board approved the purchase of 10,720 iPad2 devices, equipment, and services needed to initiate the 1:1 program at all MISD high schools. Funding for this $6.4 million initiative came from the District’s fund balance. Read the iPad Program Quick Facts. Go to the iPad program resource and documentation page.
