The Columbian

Battle Ground — Battle Ground Public Schools received a $300,000 grant from the Federal Communication Commission’s E-rate program to replace the district’s entire wireless network this year. The new network will provide enhanced capabilities, bandwidth, security features, ease of use and improved network support, with roughly half of the cost coming from the E-rate program, which comes from the Federal Communication Commission’s Universal Service Fund. “Battle Ground Public Schools recognizes that technology plays a critical role in education and is committed to providing students with the tools needed to succeed in modern classrooms and work environments,” Scott McDaniel, the district’s director of technology, said in a release. “We are excited for the opportunity to upgrade our already strong, reliable and secure network that is capable of supporting technology use by each student, every day, in all of our schools.”
