Nearly 140 Los Angeles Unified schools that lack Wi-Fi access will get a technology upgrade over the next several years, using $99 million in voter-approved bond funds. About 50 schools in the San Fernando Valley are among the 138 campuses that will benefit from the modernization program approved last week by the school board. Officials say the upgrade will free teachers and students from having to use computers only in hard-wired classrooms, offering greater flexibility in devising more creative lesson plans and better learning tools. “We want a system that gives high-density, industrial-strength technology to every school,” Ron Chandler, the district’s chief information officer, said during a committee meeting on the plan. “We want every school to be wireless.”
