Wednesday, February 10, 2010

POLK COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- The Polk County school district is giving away iPods to some parents.
The school district is using the device to reward parents of children with disabilities who fill out a 10-minute online survey. The district wants to know how well it's connecting with the parents and how to get parents involved in their children's education.
The district is spending about $350,000 in federal stimulus money for the iPods.
The district has more than 10,000 students with disabilities.
