California is distributing at least $1.25 billion to school districts to help them implement the Common Core State Standards -- funds that some districts intend to use over the next two years to purchase materials, training or technology. Plans in the Bonita Unified district call for buying 80 additional computers for each of its schools, while Long Beach Unified has plans to stock 60 new computer labs. Los Angeles Unified, however, is investing millions of dollars in supplying iPads for every student.
