Additional Information: With the recent passage of the bond levy we are moving ahead in several different projects. There is funding earmarked for laptops at the JH. However, since Mr. Cook has gotten an excellent price we propose the purchase of laptops for both the JH and Kershaw. Funding was set aside in the amount of 36,000 for two labs (60 computers + licencing) for the Junior High. Laptops (32) are also needed at Kershaw. Laptops for JH are coming in at approximately $350 each for a total of $21,000. We can purchase another 32 for $11,200. This would leave us with enough money to purchase extra batteries out of the allotted amount. These computers are off lease and have i5 processors, 8gb ram, 128 ssd drives, and will work great for the students at the JH, we will move the computers from jh to Kershaw and help them get more computers at their school. I got 6 quotes 4 of which were valid The first one was from "2nd Gear" for $358, shipped with 3 year warranty and the 2nd was from "General Procurement" for $339. It does include shipping but warranty of only 90 days. The 3rd quote was from "CDI" $439, included shipping and 3 year warranty and the 5th was from "STS" for $389, and included shipping and 3 year warranty. Mr. Cook recommends the lowest bid with a 3 year warranty from "2nd Gear."

Additional Information: Mr. Dunn and School Board, I am requesting the purchase of 140 desks and chairs to replace worn out ones in the 4th and 5th grades. 140 desks/chairs will furnish 5 classrooms with 28 desks/chairs per classroom (28 x 5 = 140). I have brought in 5-6 different desks for teachers to preview along with 3-4 different chairs over the course of the last 12 months, and have now found a desk and chair that is of high quality and reasonably priced. The price of the desks have ranged from $99 to $240 while the chairs have ranged from $40 to $85. The desk that I am recommending that we purchase is called the Jr. Executive Desk at a cost of $161/desk and the chair is a navy blue cantilever chair at a cost of $49.64/chair. As I have worked with the two separate companies, they have both brought the cost of their product down considerably due to the amount of chairs/desks that we would be ordering. Chairs: 140 chairs x $49.64/chair = $6,949.60 Chairs: Shipping & Handling = $650.00 Chair Total = $7,599.60 Desks: 140 desks x $161/desk = $22,540.00 Desks: Shipping & Handling = $4,904.00 Desk Total = $27,444.00 Chair and Desk Total = $35,043.60 We set aside $30,000 from the levy for the purchase of new desks and chairs at Kershaw Intermediate School. I will pay for anything above $30,000 out of my school budget. I am attaching the two estimates. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that I can help out with. Thanks, Neil Williams
