The Ann Arbor Public School board has voted to approve the purchase of 35 mobile sound field amplification systems through REMC, a regional purchasing consortium. The total cost will be $27,405 – just over the limit of $22,865 requiring board approval.
The new equipment will replace systems purchased as part of the 2004 Comprehensive School Improvement Program, which are now failing to maintain their battery charges.
The vote by the AAPS board of trustees took place at the Feb. 13, 2013 meeting. The board had been briefed on the sound systems at its Dec. 19, 2012 meeting.
This brief was filed from the board room of the Ann Arbor District Library in downtown Ann Arbor at Fifth and William. A more detailed report of the meeting will follow: [link]
