Columbia school board gets update on technology upgrades | Community News |

When: Columbia Borough school board meeting, Dec. 15.

What happened: The board received an update from Lotsie Wooten, the district's technology director.

New equipment: Wooten placed an order for new laptops for district faculty and administrators. The district has also installed eight new security cameras and is in the process of installing security camera monitoring TVs at each school. Additionally, the district replaced the sound board at the Hill Campus auditorium and is working on replacing the projection system in the library at Park Elementary.

Tax rate: Consistent with state law, the board adopted a resolution limiting the amount that the district's property tax rate can be raised for the 2023-24 school year. The resolution does not set the property tax rate for 2023-24 but does mandate that property taxes will not be increased by more than 6%.
