LOYALTON — Stemming from their purchase of Apple iPads for their students earlier this year, The Upper Dauphin Area School District is once again reinvesting in technology with a larger purchase.

At their meeting Dec. 5, the board voted to spend almost $70,000 on Apple-branded computers, based on a quote sought by superintendent Evan Williams that was set to expire on Dec. 10. The purchase will be for 13 five-packs of MacBook Air computers, 65 total, at a total cost of $64,200. Those computers will be used by the middle and elementary school teachers.

The district will also purchase five 21.5-inch iMac desktop computers at a total cost of $5,245. Those computers will be used for the student help desk initiative where students help to fix computer troubles, and in the elementary and middle school libraries.
