Mistake Delays Internet Boost for Georgia Schools

ATLANTA (AP) - State education officials have pulled the plug on a project described as the largest Internet expansion in Georgia school history.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that someone forgot to add $3.6 million to an upcoming bond issue -- and no one noticed.

The $3.6 million for the Internet upgrade is part of a plan to bring all 180 school districts up to speed in an increasingly digital era.

Georgia's network operates on three megabits per second for each school district. The state's top school technology chief, Bob Swiggum, wants to change that. He's been working with technology counterparts at the University System of Georgia to make it happen.

Swiggum said he forgot to tell enough people about the plans so that money was secured. He expects the project to be delayed a year.
