TEXARKANA, Ark. — The Texarkana Arkansas School District Board of Trustees approved the purchase of furniture and Promethean boards for Arkansas Middle School in a special meeting Wednesday night.
The board’s approval of bids for furniture, trash cans and Promethean boards are all for Arkansas Middle School, which is currently under construction and is slated to open in the spring of 2021.
The first bid approved was for student desks, chairs and computer tables from Ledwell, for $353,432.80.
This was not the lowest quote offered, which was from Virco, but Magnet Grant Coordinator Rachel Scott said the quote from Ledwell better met the specifications they were looking for.
