SUBJECT

Flat Panel, Interactive Displays for Alleghany High School: New Tech

RATIONALE

To enhance the technical capabilities of the New Tech program at Alleghany High School, the school’s staff has expressed a need for additional wide-screen, interactive display systems. At present, the school has one mobile interactive display.

 

The school’s existing flat panel –manufactured by Promethian- was purchased following a long-term product trial. Prior to purchase, theschool’s staff members were pleased with the system’s technical capabilities:

  • Pen-on-paper writing performance
  • Easy collaboration tools (two students can write at the same time)
  • Touch detection (system differentiates between pen, touch, and palm erase)
  • Wi-Fi ready; built-in audio, PC/Chromebook compatibility
  • 4K, High Definition
  • Mobile stand with height adjust capability (standing/sitting)
  • Fully compatible with Google Play applications

 

The technology department requests the school board’s authorization to proceed with a purchase of ten Promethian ActivPanels, ten ActivPanel mobile stands, and ten ActivConnect wireless android modules.

 

For this purchase consideration and per school board policy, four quotes have been received. Clinton Learning Solutions (Waldorf, Maryland) has provided the low proposal price of $38,470.00.
