The Los Angeles Unified board Tuesday approved a $30 million contract to buy iPads for 30,000 students, the first phase in an ambitious plan to equip every pupil with a computer tablet within the next 14 months. LAUSD received more than a dozen proposals for the lucrative contract, and narrowed the field to three finalists — Apple and Arey Jones, which submitted separate plans using Dell and HP tablets. Each of the three finalists included Pearson educational software as part of their plan.
