The upgrade will enhance local instruction on Grand Bahama and Eleuthera, as well as enable instruction without the need to travel to remote settlements.  Through technology, the teaching curriculum and important educational facilitation will be conveyed to students, instantly, at many more points through the archipelago.     (BIS Photos/Raymond A.
