Harrison Hills City School District Technical Coordinator Keith Eddy said nearly $148,000 would be saved through technological upgrades and discounts over the next year through applications of the E-Rate technical assistance program.
In addition to saving money, local schools are being wired with fiber optics to increase speed from 10 to 100 megabytes and classrooms are equipped with high-tech learning tools to improve students’ education.
“It will allow us to use more multimedia in classes and more devices to connect online,” Eddy said. “By the start of school next year, we should have every classroom equipped with interactive boards. It’s new for Harrison County and opens up opportunities for us.”
