A request for proposals was issued, after which the district’s Technology Operations Department received and evaluated six bids for this project. Because it is a Georgia Department of Education E-Rate project, the county will be able to move forward at a sizable discount. Additional funding will come from SPLOST funds that have been marked for school upgrades. The cost for the project is $954,225 and the district’s total commitment is $427,347.
According to staff report, the equipment will be ordered in May and installed during the summer break.
