All 72 students will receive an iPad when they return to school this fall. Harrison Elementary is a Title 1 school with low reading scores. The i Pads will have apps downloaded to improve students’ reading and math skills. Hamilton County District 9 Commissioner Chester Bankston was able to pitch in as well, and joined the D9 staff to spring this great surprise to the students at Harrison.
