Brookings schools to multiply bandwidth

Posted: Friday, Feb 21st, 2014

• Bandwidth to increase from 100 to 250 MB/s

BROOKINGS – Significantly more bandwidth will be available to the Brookings School District beginning this summer, once the state ups the district’s megabits per second (MB/s) of connectivity from 100 to 250.

Superintendent Roger DeGroot informed the Brookings school board of the change during its Feb. 10 meeting. He said the upgrade is especially important as the district considers implementing a 1-to-1 technology-to-student program at Brookings High School. The program could put a laptop computer or an electronic tablet in the hands of each of the district’s high schoolers.

“(The state) knew we were talking about 1-to-1 and that other schools have had a lot of problems with that,” DeGroot explained.
