Computer labs are expanded, upgraded
Students may be out for the summer but Liberty County School District Technology Supervisor Jason Fowler is staying busy as he installs more computers to the second of three labs at Liberty County High School. When the installation is complete, the district will have nine new labs installed within the last year as well as secure wireless networking in all three schools. “We’ve done some pretty substantial upgrades,” according to School Superintendent Sue Summers. She said additional computers were critical because of future state-mandated testing that will have to be done online. The extra computer labs and equipment will also help the district expand dual-enrollment programs, allowing students to take college courses at the high school and save tuition fees and textbook costs.
