Students and teachers at Woodlawn High gathered Wednesday as Baltimore County officials announced their school would be part of a regional high-speed broadband fiber optic network project meant to increase Internet speeds, improve access to data and save money. The school is one of 46 in the county that will be part of the project, which will eventually connect 115 sites and allow the installation of wireless technology in schools and other buildings. Officials said the initiative would save the county between $1 million and $1.5 million a year in Internet and phone bills.
