The Dougherty County School System Board of Education approved $5.5 million for a technology infrastructure project.
This will begin the first phase of a three-phase project.
Board members say they owe it to the students to provide new technology that many other school systems have been using for years.
This first phase will provide the groundwork to eventually, in the later phases, bring technology to help teachers better communicate with students.
This would mean having new computers in the classrooms and update software down the road.
