WATERLOO — Equipment purchases for computer network upgrades at several schools will come before the Board of Education on Monday.
The board meets at 5 p.m. in the Education Service Center, 1516 Washington St.
In December, the Waterloo Community Schools sought bids for network switches and wireless access points. The technology would replace aging equipment at Carver and Central middle schools plus Cunningham, Highland, Kingsley, and Lincoln elementaries plus two other district locations. Additionally, bids were sought for equipment to replace Waterloo Schools’ master enterprise wireless controllers, which serve all access points in the district.
The bids have since been evaluated and the board could approve two separate purchases.
The first could go to Goldfield Telecom LC for network equipment with a cost of $433,354. The second could go to Aercor Wireless for wireless network equipment with a cost of $172,699. This is a total cost of $606,053.
