MEMORANDUM TO: FROM: Henry A. Shaffer, Interim Superintendent of Schools Kyle L. Rickansrud, Instructional Coordinator for Educational Technology Kelly V. Wood, Purchasing Agent November 10, 2008 SMART Technologies Interactive White Boards

DATE: SUBJECT:

Over the past year, Cecil County has used a variety of grants to purchase SMART Board (an Interactive Whiteboard that connects to a computer) technology. We have installed 68 of these boards in the classrooms throughout the elementary, middle and high schools, allowing the teachers to engage students more actively in their lessons. Teachers and students both have responded positively. This year, we anticipate purchasing more SMART Boards using Title 1, grant and local funds. In the initial purchases of these boards, we utilized The PEPPM (Pennsylvania Education Purchasing Program for Microcomputers) Contract. Due to the quantity of SMART Boards to be purchased, it was felt that we would be able obtain a better price if we issued a bid. The result was that we were correct and will save approximately $312 per set versus what we had been paying. Attachments cmh/KLR

Our Mission: to provide an excellent pre-kindergarten through graduation learning experience that enables ALL students to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required for lifelong learning and productive citizenship in an ever-changing global society.
