200 Plus Schools Sign Up for State Contracted WiFi

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Department of Education officials say 203 schools have decided to sign up for a new statewide high school wireless internet contract. Among those opting in are schools in Boise, Idaho Falls, Moscow and Post Falls.

The cost is estimated at about $10,300 per school. Education Networks of America won the bid to equip as many as 340 Idaho schools with the wireless Internet access. So far, only about 60 percent of the schools listed in that original bid have signed up.

But Education Department spokeswoman Melissa McGrath said the 340 number included middle schools that won’t be eligible after all. McGrath said only about 250 schools statewide are eligible for the assistance.
