Last contract awarded for Cape Public Schools’ $40 million bond issue | News
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Cape Girardeau Public Schools Board of Education awarded a contract to High-Tech Communications of Cape Girardeau on Monday to furnish audio-visual equipment for the new Richard D. Kinder Performance Hall.
That contract was the last of dozens awarded as a result of the $40 million bond issue approved by voters in 2010.
“It’s something we can all take pride in,” said Neil Glass, Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services. “It was a community effort. It was a result of a shared vision of the board, the steering committee and the community to give our kids a first-rate and safe learning environment.”
The contract provides for a state-of-the-art audio-visual installation at the new 1000-plus-seat facility at Central High School. The school district says the building will be completely enclosed in a matter of weeks and interior finishing will begin when roofing installation is complete.
The bond issue provided for improvements at eight of the District’s ten campuses.
