FORT VALLEY -- Some Peach County classrooms are in store for new, high-tech equipment.

The Peach County Board of Education approved Tuesday 37 new laptops for some elementary school classrooms. The laptops will provide supplemental instruction, allowing students to share the equipment during class time. Thirty of the laptops will go to Byron Elementary School, while the rest will go to Kay Road Elementary, said Ken Banter, district director of Title I.

The district will also receive 12 new interactive screens and audio systems for classrooms. The systems, which will allow teachers to stream Internet, among other uses, will go to Byron Elementary and Byron Middle School, Banter said.
