The South Whidbey School Board is likely to approve over $30,000 in purchases of projectors in both the high school and elementary school campuses at its regular monthly meeting tonight at South Whidbey Elementary School.

Forty-five projectors are expected to be bought to “complete the modernization of classroom instructional technology,” according to a school document. The total cost bid is $627.50 per classroom, and consists of three parts: Project installation, projector board installation and necessary cable attachments.

David Pfieffer, director of South Whidbey Academy, proposed the purchases be made as part of the transition process following Langley Middle School’s closure, as well as general maintenance of district facilities.
