The Eanes ISD board of trustees voted to approve the allocation of a portion of the $80 million bond package to purchase new technology, according to district information.
EISD surveyed four vendors before approving a $586,786 purchase from GTS Technology Solutions, a member of the Texas Department of Information Resources.
District documents state the procurement of this technology will allow EISD to replace the out-of-date computer systems in secondary classroom labs purchased in 2011. The budget will also be used to purchase new computers for the robotics lab.
Specifically, the purchase includes 242 Dell desktops, 62 Dell laptops, and two charging carts.
