Every high school student at South Adams will soon be getting a laptop computer for school use.
The one-to-one laptop program moved forward at a meeting on Tuesday when school board members approved a four-year lease agreement with Medical and Municipal Funding to purchase 420 computers.
Additionally, 100 computers will be purchased to replace some of the computers in a lab at the middle school.
The one-to-one laptop computer program is expected to be implemented at the beginning of the 2012-13 school year.
Also at the meeting, board members approved a motion to hire Leslie Coatings Company of Indianapolis to repair the schools' tennis courts for $35,450. The company will repair 1,200 linear feet of cracks and recoat all six courts (42,480 square feet), and guarantee their repairs for three years.
The tennis court work is expected to be done sometime between the last week of May and the first two weeks of June.
In other business, Superintendent Scott Litwiller said that there still have been no bids on the former elementary school property. The bid deadline is 3 p.m. on Friday, March 30. The school board will meet in a special session at 5 p.m. that day to review and either accept or reject the received bids.
If there are still no bids on the property, it is likely that the meeting will be cancelled, said Litwiler.
