The Knox Community School Board member discussed entering into a lease agreement with Apple computers at their recent meeting.

“That program would involve having an Apple Macbook computer for each of the students enrolled from grades six through twelve,” said Superintendent, A.J. Gappa. “We’re looking at a four year lease program that Apple promotes through different school corporations throughout the State of Indiana and also throughout the country. Apple representative, Joseph Lee, was here to help answer questions that the Board members had about the program. Many questions have been answered, but there are some other items that the Board wants to look at before they make a commitment because it is such a large commitment. We anticipate getting some of those questions answered before the next Board meeting.”

The Board will discuss the Apple lease at their next Board meeting on Monday, May 16th. The lease will cost approximately $390,000 a year for four years.
