Migrant education students in San Joaquin County are the first in California to have an Explore e-book app created for their iPads. The program launched for the San Joaquin County Office of Education on Tuesday. It focuses on children of migrant farm workers in first through fifth grades enrolled in the migrant education afterschool program.

The goal is to provide students with flexible and mobile opportunities to read and interact with highly engaging text. Migrant students will be using the iPads and e-books during the school day as well as in the afterschool program. More than 2,000 students are a part of the Migrant Education Region 23 program. Historically, 98 percent of migrant students from the learning facility in French Camp go on to college. SJCOE purchased 300 iPads to further support these students.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
