FBI seizes documents related to Los Angeles schools' problematic $1 billion iPad project

FBI agents have seized 20 boxes of documents related to Los Angeles Unified School District's beleaguered $1 billion iPad project.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1vi22we ) reported the FBI visit on Tuesday.

An LAUSD spokeswoman confirmed to The Associated Press the FBI had seized district documents Monday afternoon.

Interim Superintendent Ramon Cortines told the Times the visit surprised school officials.

Former Superintendent John Deasy instituted a district plan to give each student an iPad, but the program has been plagued with problems. Deasy's communications with vendors have been investigated. He resigned in October.
