Tonight's Board of Ed Agenda: Technology Initiative, Bond Referendum and More
Meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in Roosevelt School cafeteria.
The public meeting of the Westfield Board of Education will begin at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the cafeteria of Roosevelt School.
The meeting's agenda will include a report on the district’s technology initiative. At a June meeting of the BOE, Chief Technology Officer Brian Auker said both the district wireless project and the accompanying network security was expected to be in place by Sept. 1. In addition, dozens of new laptops and iPads for students of all grade levels were to be purchased for the 2012-2013 school year.
Also up for discussion is the upcoming bond referendum. During a special election to be held on Monday, Sept. 24, Westfield residents will have an opportunity to vote for or against a $16.9 million bond which would fund roof repairs ($13.6 million) and a lighted turf field ($3.3 million) to be installed at Westfield High School.
The Westfield Public School District created a website, www.westfieldnjk12.org/bond2012 to provide additional details regarding the referendum.
A second meeting to discuss the upcoming special election will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 19 in Roosevelt School's auditorium.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 24.
