The North Hills school board ratified several bids at Monday evening's legislative meeting.
The board approved the bid for 50 Lenovo laptops with Gobi Cards, which allow for wireless Internet access, to Tech Depot for more than $74,000. The laptops will be for student use.
As part of the board's decision to enhance school building security and surveillance earlier this year, the board approved a bid to Dagostino Electronic Services to provide the district camera improvements and network video recorder modifications for about $24,000.
The board also ratified the project for a multi-sensory classroom at Ross Elementary for a little less than $18, 000 to TFA (USA) Ltd. The multi-sensory environment will offer students with special needs sensory stimulation, a positive opportunity for quality of life improvement, facilitate therapy and enhance their learning.
Additionally, the board approved a bid for a SMART Response Interactive PE Interactive Recording System to Total Video Products, Inc. for a price of $6,360.
The items all were previously accounted for in the 2013-14 budget.
