The Herricks Board of Education accepted a grant of $25,000 from the state Senate, which will be used for technology upgrades in the district, according to Superintendent of Schools John Bierwirth.
“We plan to use the money to purchase new smart boards,” Bierwirth said.
Bierwirth said the district plans to purchase one new LED smart board as well, which will not need a projector to be used.
“We’re going to pilot it and see if we like it,” he said. “We want to make sure we can use it before we buy more of them.”
