The Okemos School District is on its way to having wireless routers in every useable room in the high school and two new school buses. The Okemos Board of Education committee approved the amenities at its meeting March 24. The committee approved the bid of $115,316.10 submitted by the Center for Business Innovation for 170 internet access devices. Director of Media & Technology Errin Chapman said the addition is simple yet necessary. “The project is simply to add more wireless coverage in the buildings to prepare for the one-to-one personal learning devices that are coming our way next year for the students and staff,” he said.
