Some Houston County classrooms might soon see new SMART boards.

During a work session Monday, the Houston County Board of Education heard a proposal for 50 new boards. Officials proposed purchasing 30 replacement boards and 20 new boards at a cost of $117,794. Board members will vote on the purchase Tuesday.

The board also will vote on a capital application to obtain state funds for heating and air conditioning renovations at Miller Elementary School. State funds are estimated at about $363,690, and the project is scheduled to begin around October, according to district documents.
