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.


Not made in the US... how many more stories like this are we going to hear?

Having said that what's the deal with giving these anyway?

They up dated their report, it never was coming from federal stimulus funds but from some other source & less than half of the amount stated. In any event the whole thing has been scraped. The problem is there were guidelines as to how this stim. money was to be spent but the politicians are running wild.
