Crandon School District jumps the gun on PA system contract

Dorothy Kegley

       The Crandon School Board approved sending a contract to Wire Technologies, Inc., for the installation of a new PA system for the school at the July 23 workshop. The proposal presented was approximately one hundred thousand dollars less than another proposal presented to the board at a previous meeting.

At a special school board meeting July 31, Holly Ackley, one of the school district’s information technology specialists, said that no one had talked to her about the project and that the system they chose was not compatible with the current system. She explained that to make it compatible it would cost a lot more than the first proposal because all current phones would have to be replaced with Cisco phones.
