As we enter August, the work at the Harvey Education Center is now in the final stages to welcome students back in a few short weeks. The photos below depict many things including classroom cubbies, the extended learning areas, the new interactive system being installed in the gymnasium (more on this later!), the interactive project and screens in classrooms and the exterior sidewalks.
Thank you to Paul Kato for capturing this footage of the Harvey Center. Please note this footage was taken June 23 even though it says July 23.
On Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 10:00am, bids were received at Mason Public Schools – Administrative Offices. A total of nine (9) bids were received for seven (7) bid categories.
Bidders were not required to bid entire bid categories; therefore, it is the recommendation of GMB that bids are awarded by line item. GMB has completed its review of the bids and in addition to the bid review; we have also conducted a sample review with apparent lowest qualified bidders. Based on the results of these reviews, we recommend to Mason Public Schools that they award the contracts as follows:
Great Lakes Furniture Supply $15,780.00
School Speciality $19,183.79
Holland Desk & Chair $6,123.18
At the Mason Public Schools Board of Education meeting on March 11, the Board approved bids for cabling and multimedia systems upgrades throughout the district, which is part of Phase 1 of the Capital Improvement Project.
The total bid award was $337,700. The contractors selected were Datacom Group for low voltage cabling and Digital Age Technologies for multimedia systems.
Superintendent Ronald Drzewicki said, “Mason Public Schools has done significant work already to improve technology, including increasing the district’s wireless access points from 112 to 370 last year. Continuing to build out the quality of our technology will benefit all of Mason’s buildings including the ones under renovation through the Capital Improvement Project. The support of our community is appreciated.”
