SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) -- The Lake Pend Oreille School District in northern Idaho says it will participate in the state-funded wireless Internet program recently announced by State Schools Superintendent Tom Luna.
District technology director Randy Wittwe said that the district signed an opt-in agreement.
Education Networks of America won the contract to equip as many as 340 Idaho high schools with the wireless Internet access.
The $2.1 million contract awarded Wednesday calls for an initial term of five years with option to renew for up to 15 years.
Wittwe says taking part in the program will save money at the local level.
