Placeholder Image

The summer upgrades for Hall County schools were presented Monday night.

The requests for allocation of special purpose local option sales tax were submitted to the Hall County Board of Education for consideration and span nine county schools.

Requests include $71,060 for media furniture/facility upgrades and $40,000 for theater dressing room redesign and upgrade at North Hall High School; upgrades to building 2010 at East Hall High in the amount of $51,900 and restroom upgrades at Riverbend Elementary for $30,000.

Also requested was a wireless controller at the Old South Hall High School campus. The controller will serve as a backup for the wireless system districtwide. If one school's wireless goes down, this backup will boot up in seconds. The estimated price is $93,435.

SPLOST funds will also cover the third phase of purchasing student devices. The system gave schools a "menu" of approved devices (laptops, cameras, etc.) and allowed them to choose the technology based on their own needs.

That phase is listed at $952,423.

The next Hall County Board of Education meeting is March 26 at 5 p.m.
