Board Approves Furniture Purchase For New Classrooms

Posted on 23 September 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Some furniture may be moved, but plans are not to move very much into the new addition at Boone High School.  The School Board approved moving ahead with the purchase of chairs, desks, tables, teacher desks and other items during their meeting last Thursday.  Superintendent Brad Manard, on “Tuned In” Friday said approval of the order was necessary to have furnishings available for use the beginning of the second semester, after the holiday break.  Manard says they saw the impact with the order of furniture for the recently completed art rooms.  Items were ordered with an expected delivery within 8-weeks.  It ended up being more than 12-weeks.  If it takes 12-weeks to get new furniture for the new addition, it will be touch and go.  Class rooms are expected to be completed within the next 12-weeks.  To speed up delivery of furnishings, the order was submitted through a supplier that takes out bids on items the beginning of the year.  The process should save the district at least $50,000 and make for a speedier delivery.  DLR officials say if the district actually bid the furnishings, it might take 16-weeks to receive the items.
