Elk Island Public Schools has taken another step towards improved technology, with a wireless Internet pilot project through Bev Facey Community High School. Bev Facey currently has wireless available, but the new system will create a network more in tune to teaching and classroom work, according to principal Peter Barron, who said the current system is sporadic in coverage. “It really doesn’t have the needs we want to have,” he said. “We’re replacing it with a new system, so we’re going to run a stress test… and we’re going to ask all our students to bring in their devices and have experts on hand to sort of monitor how the wireless works when we light up the school. “We’re just going to turn on everything wireless here and see how well it works. If all goes well, then they’re going to roll it out to other schools in Elk Island.”
