SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

Spartanburg School District 7 leaders approved a district-wide digital conversion during Tuesday's meeting.

The board approved plans that will put MacBook Air laptops in the hands of all middle and high school students and give iPads to elementary students in third, fourth and fifth grades. 

The multi-phase rollout is expected to begin with teachers before the end of the current school year. Students will receive devices this fall.
 
Students will be able to use the technology at home and will also be allowed to take them home to complete homework assignments according to district spokesperson Erika Shoolbred.

We're told - for added security - the computers would run through the district's web filter, even when used off-campus.
