(WASHINGTON) - Washington schools are looking at a revenue cut of about $300,000 due to students leaving schools.

Nate Smith of the Washington Times Herald reports that Superintendent Daniel Roach and Assistant Superintendent Paul White informed the board the school received a $49,000 grant from the state Department of Education for low-income schools.

The grant will be used in two ways. The first will be installing keyless entry systems for all four elementary schools. Only the high school has a keyless system. Bids are being procured for installation.

The other project the grant will pay for will be a classroom set of iPad tablet computers.

White said he is instituting a trial program where classrooms will use the tablets instead of textbooks. The tablets will be available for teachers who want to try a fully digital curriculum.
