A school whose computer system was plagued by line-gnawing rodents has decided to install a new wireless network.
The Union Local Board of Education in Morristown, Ohio, will contract Computer Business Center of Marietta, Ohio, to install the system, which will link computers between the district’s various schools buildings.
Rodents gnawed through the district’s original $14,000 underground fiber optic system. The lines’ salt content is believed to have attracted the animals.
District technology coordinator Carol LaPosta said she’s been promised that the wireless system will be as effective as the fiber optic lines.
