Wireless Internet covering all DeKalb Co. schools

Posted: Updated:

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. (AP) - DeKalb County schools officials say the district has met one of four major goals and has reached a technological milestone.

Superintendent Michael Thurmond says classrooms on all of the school district's campuses are now covered by wireless Internet.

District officials say they spent $4.5 million to expand Internet service, and the effort to offer coverage to every school began earlier this year.

Thurmond says wireless Internet access will improve productivity of teachers and administrators and bolster classroom learning.
