Tennesseean article also mentions Julia Green Elementary, Martin Luther King Academic Magnet and Cumberland University

"At Julia Green Elementary and MLK, the parent-teacher organizations helped pay for the iPads, which run about $500 apiece. At Nashville Christian, students will help the school fund the program by paying yearly technology fees, $300 for students in grades 5-12 and $150 for grades K-4."
