All Geneva District 304 kindergarten rooms to get interactive white boards

District cost: $4,600; grant to cover $90K

The Geneva District 304 School Board on June 10 approved a $94,600 contract for 22 interactive white boards and 22 adjustable floor mounts for all kindergarten classrooms.

The cost to the district will be only $4,600 because the rest – $90,000 – is covered by grant funding, officials said.

The contract is with Midwest Computer Products Inc. of West Chicago.

The white board technology allows a teacher or students to model how to use and interact with a device, apps and online services, according to the board packet. The displays come with a five-year manufacturer warranty.

The board also approved a separate $39,580 purchase with the same company to replace 74 classroom projectors at Williamsburg and Mill Creek Elementary schools.

That cost was included in an approved 2024-25 Technology Capital Plan budget, officials said.
