North Side school preps for Apple event

CHICAGO — A Chicago high school is preparing for an Apple event next week as the tech company is expected to roll out cheaper iPads geared toward students and teachers.

Crews and trucks are at Lane Tech College Prep, 2501 W. Addison St., on the North Side. Apple will be on campus Tuesday.

The company sent out invitations saying, "Let's take a field trip! Join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students."

It will be the first time since 2012 Apple launches a product aimed at the education market.
