LOS ANGELES (AP) — The U.S. attorney's office has subpoenaed the Los Angeles Unified School District for records pertaining to its $1 billion iPad project as part of a federal grand jury probe.

A copy of the subpoena released Tuesday requests all documents related to proposals for the district's cornerstone technology initiative. Those records include proposal scoring documents, review committee files and employee information, among other materials.

The subpoena was sent to LAUSD on Nov. 21.

LAUSD general counsel David Holmquist told The Associated Press the district was expecting federal agents to visit and retrieve documents toward the end of the week. Instead FBI agents visited on Monday, carting away about 20 boxes worth of records.

Holmquist said the district has not been provided any information on what federal authorities are investigating.
