When August 2012 rolls around. New Braunfels ISD freshmen will experience a significantly differ-(^nt lifestyle than any class before them. Not only will they have their own building, but all books they nwd will be given to them at once — on their iPads.  New Braunfels ISD Su pe r i n ten d e nt R a n dy Moczygemba said a f)ii|pt effort to issue freshman iPads will be the district's next step to kc'ep up w'ith an increasingly-cligital world where information is instantly available.  "We're seeing a rapid change in technology," Moczygemba said. "They (the students) have instant access to information all the time ... and we've got to find ways to maintain a high level of education."  f'  de  Moc/ygemba said a plan to issue the iKids is still in the process of being complete y worked out, and he expects it will cost $250,000 to ecfuip the expected 566 incoming freshmen. However, he said, the initial expense will soon save the ciistrict money in what it would have to pay in books.  s o u t h (‘ r n parts ot the ( itv genera 1-t\ opposed  It.
