Elementary school will have wireless internet

Grandview Elementary School will have wireless internet access throughout the building after Derry Area School board members voted to award the contract for wireless network equipment, installation and training to Connectivity Communications Inc. of Pittsburgh during a special meeting Thursday.

The board voted 6-0 to approve the company as the low bidder for the project, at a cost of $50,438.05 to be paid out of the district's capital reserve. Board members Kelly Tatone, Joseph Soltis and James Beatrice were absent.

The bid price came in under the board's expectations, and the two other bidders for the project submitted bids more than $15,000 higher.

“That included the equipment, putting it in and the training on it. It was a pretty good deal,” board President Charles Krinock said. The bid was “a little bit lower than what we thought,” he added. “In all honesty, we thought it would have been somewhere around $65,000. They're a reputable company and they came in at a nice bid, so we're glad they bid on it.”
