Hall County schools have been awarded a $565,189 grant from the state to help cover the costs of upgrading the district’s Wi-Fi infrastructure, district officials announced Monday at a school board meeting. The grant will provide about one-third of the funding for a project the district had already planned, adding high capacity Wi-Fi access points to every instructional space in the district, Aaron Turpin, the district’s director of technology, said at the meeting. Students and staff will have access to Wi-Fi in every classroom as well as in media centers and other spaces within the schools.
