OSHKOSH, Wis. -

Members of the Oshkosh school board are getting Apple iPads as part of a district push to cut down on paper costs.

An Oshkosh Northwestern report said the tablets will be paid for by the district. Board members will have to return them when their terms are over.

Deputy Superintendent Dave Gundlach says each iPad2 will cost about $380, or $2,660 for all seven board members.

He said the devices will save money because district staff won't have to make copies and assemble bulky packets for board meetings. He said the iPads will also make it easier for members to access information.

Gundlach said the iPads are a sound investment, even though a forecast says the district will need to cut $2.6 million in spending to balance its budget.
