Richmond School Board voted unanimously Dec. 10 to accept bids for the first phase of technology equipment upgrades at the high school.
Assistant Superintendent Mike Aytes said bids were received for different kinds of computer hardware, including desktop and laptop computers, a projector and screen for the high school commons area, classroom projectors and Smartboards.
“This is a significant infusion of equipment going into the high school,” said Aytes, who is overseeing technology for the school district.
Board member Jon Thoreson asked if this would complete the acquisition of new equipment for the high school.
“This is the intent for now for the high school,” Aytes said. He did say that in several years additional purchases may be necessary to replace or upgrade pieces of equipment not included in the current purchase.
