The Chandler USD governing board unanimously approved Feb. 12 the purchase of classroom furniture for Weinberg Gifted Academy.
The furniture is for the 2020-21 school year, in which existing Weinberg Elementary School students will be moved to the district's new school, Rice Elementary School, and Weinberg will be transformed into a gifted school.
The furniture is replacing 16 classrooms; three science, technology, engineering, arts and math collaborative hubs; the cafeteria; technology labs; resource rooms; music and physical education, all of which is intended to upgrade teaching and learning environments in the new Weinberg Gifted Academy.
The furniture will be purchased from Arizona Furnishings for $301,597.93.
