LOS ANGELES (AP) — School districts are increasingly providing students with tablet computers, but most are spending less than the Los Angeles Unified School District.

LAUSD is paying $768 apiece for an iPad for its students, teachers and administrators. The Los Angeles Times reports other school districts are opting for less expensive devices.

For example, the Perris Union High School District is paying $344 each for a Chromebook for students. In San Diego, some students are equipped with a $200 tablet.

Schools are trying to find ways to hold down costs while embracing technology. Some are leasing computers or buying cheaper iPad models without spending more for curriculum software.
