New technology is coming to the South Whidbey School District.
The South Whidbey School Board approved the purchasing of over $140,000 worth of projectors for 45 classrooms in the district at its regular monthly meeting on June 28.
The new “smart” projectors will be used in both the high school and elementary school campuses and replaces aging equipment. It also modernizes classroom instructional technology. The hardware costs for the projectors is $129,515, while tax bumped up the total cost by $11,267.81.
The district solicited a bid from Micro K-12, a “qualified contractor,” for the projectors and will consist of three parts: project installation, projector board installation and necessary cable attachments.
