About 700 teachers have received new Mac and PC laptops since 2012, when the school district began rolling them out to teachers.
As of mid-September, teachers had requested more than 660 laptops at Hoover High School, Edison Elementary, Lincoln Elementary and Verdugo Woodlands Elementary.
With each educator granted the choice between a Mac or PC, the majority of them have asked for Apple Mac computers over Hewlett-Packard PCs, according to Frank Schlueter, director of educational technology for Glendale Unified.
Each MacBook Pro costs $2,055, including software and tax, while the Hewlett Packard laptops cost $1,091 each, Schlueter said.
The school board also approved purchasing 600 scanners to help teachers quickly scan forms that students use to take multiple-choice exams. Total cost for the scanners is $24,954.
