Nine other schools will get new computers that weekend. They are the Alternative School, Cascade Elementary, Conococheague Elementary, Fairview Outdoor School, Greenbrier Elementary, Old Forge Elementary, Pangborn Elementary, South Hagerstown High and Williamsport Elementary.
The equipment is being paid for by state technology grants. Each of the 13 schools got $2,200, McGee said.
"That's obviously welcome. We've made a lot of progress," he said.
Now that the county's wiring is mostly up to date, more emphasis will be on buying computers and training teachers on how to integrate them into the curriculum, he said.
Some of the schools are planning open houses during Net Weekend to show parents and the public how technology is being used in the classroom.
This is the third year for Maryland's Net Weekend, which has helped improve Internet access at 15 county schools, McGee said.
In the first two years, 10,000 volunteers helped wire nearly 1,000 schools, said a press release from Gov. Parris Glendening's office.
This year, the program, cosponsored by GTE Communications Corp. and NEC America, awarded $866,000 in technology grants, the governor's office said.
