Eastern Pulaski School Board Approves Wireless Internet Upgrade

The Eastern Pulaski School Board members heard a special report from the Technology Team at their meeting Monday Night. Superintendent Dr. Robert Klitzman says the team talked about the efforts being made in technology since the summer months and upgrades. The Board also made a step forward with the advancement in technology in the corporation.

“The Board did approve and authorize our movement towards a wireless network in all of our buildings,” stated Dr. Klitzman. “This summer, we will go wireless. Whatever device our students are going to use, we think it’s going to be of a wireless nature.”

Once the wireless component is installed, the Technology Team and the Board will decide where to go with technology.

“It’s not our intent to just bombard our staff and our students all at once with a one-on-one student-to-device approach. Rather, we are phasing it in. We’re already offering it with our Advanced Placement English students. They all have notebooks that are school-owned but are used by the students 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our plan is to phase in more groups of students, as needed, in more grade levels.”

He says within three years or so, every student will have some sort of device.
