BOISE -- The state Department of Education has issued a request for proposals to provide high-speed wireless Internet to public high schools across Idaho.

The Times-News reports the agency is accepting proposals through June 28 and expects to award a bid before the next school year.

The 2013 Legislature appropriated provided $2.25 million to provide wireless connectivity at the state's public high schools.

High schools won't be required to participate. All public high schools that opt in for the state's managed wireless service are estimated to be connected by March 2014.
