Harbor View currently has 3 iPad carts that are shared between the grade levels. Kindergarten has a cart of 20 iPads, 1st and 2nd grade share a cart of 30 iPads, and 3rd grade had a cart of 27 iPads. Grades 4-6 are all part of the 1:1 iPad program; each student has their own iPad to utilize at school and at home.
The iPads are used for hands-on, engaging activities in all subjects that support our Common Core Goals. iPads are also used to support our RtI program through apps such as ST Math/JiJi, Lexia CORE5, Accelerated Reader, STAR Reading, Math Facts in a Flash, and Spelling City. Below are some of the apps/online programs being utilized on the iPads:

The iPad carts are fully funded by the Harbor View PFO, which is continuously fundraising for the program.
