ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va.--- School staff in Rockingham County would like to boost the technology in all area schools. Staff included this as one of its priorities it would like included in next year's budget.
With better technology, teachers, students and staff will have faster and better internet access. In addition, staff will receive instructional and technical support.
This upgrade to the internet would cost the school district nearly $517,000. The money will have to come from the Rockingham County Board of Supervisors.
"Demands on our system are increasing to the point that when we start to test, everyone has to stay off the network so the system doesn't crash," said Rockingham County School Board Member Lowell Fulk.
The board expects to get extra funding from the state. It is using that money to pay increased healthcare costs.
