LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Unified School District may slow its proposed bond-financed $1 billion roll-out of iPads to every student following missteps in the program's first phase.

The board could vote Nov. 12 on a resolution introduced at Tuesday's meeting by Board Member Monica Ratliff that would postpone further phases of the program until 2016. The resolution would limit the roll-out to the tablet computers already dispersed during Phase One for school year 2013-14 while an evaluator reviews the program. Ratliff also wants the district to consider whether it would be better to equip high school students with laptops instead of tablets.
