A State Environment Quality Review Act resolution for Norwood Elementary that would improve its drainage and windows, along with a new four-year networked copier project was approved at Monday night's Comsewogue Board of Education meeting.
The SEQRA project at the elementary school would provide additional drainage in the parking lot and replace the windows, lexan panels, and provide fall protection for skylights. The board approved the resolution unanimously.
Additionally, the board discussed a new resolution authorizing the Cooperative Educational Services, First Supervisory District of Suffolk County to undertake a technology project consisting of the acquisition and installation of networked copiers, and other services.
Approval of the resolution will allow BOCES to come in and replace administrative copies at various locations throughout the district. According to the resolution, "This networked equipment will support the district's administrative documentation and increase document efficiency."
The total upgrade will, over the course of the deployment, cost around $225,000. Assistant Superintendent for Business, Susan Casali, said not all of it would come out of the district's budget. "We were able to get aid on this project," said Casali. "It won't cost us the full amount, about 50% is aid-able."
The multi-year service agreement entered into by both BOCES and the district will be effective upon execution by both parties and would last till September of 2017.
