Things could be turning around for Jesse Scott Elementary School. 
 
 
There's a new effort to help replace each and every one of them. 
 
We're one week away from Nevada's Big Give, a day when Nevadans get 24 hours to donate to the charities of their choice.
 
CCSD has created a special portal for anyone who wants to donate directly to this cause.
 
Near the end of last year, a CCSD IT specialist was arrested for stealing 40 iPads.
 
He was supposed to deliver them to Jesse Scott Elementary, but the school never got them.
 
The iPads were meant to bring more technology into classrooms. Students planned on using the the iPads to read online books, practice math problems and conduct research.
 
Nevada's Big Give is next Thursday, but you can already start donating to this cause.
