This was a Charlie Foxtrot from the beginning.  I work in IT, and most districts have realized this is a very bad idea.

One of the two districts in this county will not give out tablets to their students.  The other did it for a few, very specific classes, probably less than 100 students.  For a student to get one, their parents had to agree to pay for the iPad if it went missing.
