More Problems For LAUSD iPads: Dozens Missing

Posted: Updated:

First reports that students hacked into iPads and used them to go online for purposes other than school. Now, we're learning there are 71 iPads missing.

We're talking about iPads paid for with tax payer money.  Currently, the district is handing out iPads worth $700 each.

The school district doesn't know what happened to the 71 iPads but they are investigating.  "At this point they're lost or missing.  There are 69 units from one particular school missing, the Valley Academy of Arts and Sciences, and two from Chavez Learning Center also in the Valley.  We're in the process of reconciling that inventory," said Lt. Jose Santome, with LAUSD Police.

1200 iPads were handed out last year, at the end of the school year 71 did not make it back.  Despite that LAUSD handed out another 14,000 iPads last month.  The goal is to provide iPads to every LAUSD student, totaling an estimated $1 billion.

The school district says the iPads handed out this year have advanced tracking devices that allow the district to find or even lock the iPads.  The ones handed out last year didn't have those advanced tracking mechanisms.

Officials say they will press charges if they find out the iPads were in fact stolen.
