Technology leads the list of capital purchases requested for 2014-15 at Lyons Township High School.
Computers and related devices comprise 63 percent of the requested items totaling $947,795. The total is up 3.3 percent from a year ago.
More science items than usual also are on the list, said business manager David Sellers. The high school is planning to renovate eight science labs as part of construction projects totaling $20 million, set to begin in the summer.
The list also includes $100,000 for 250 marching band uniforms, $10,400 for replacing musical instruments, $4,185 for three pottery wheels, $7,985 for two band saws and $50,000 for cable television equipment.
Sellers noted some equipment requests have been deferred for several years and are being requested again.
School Board members will review the equipment requests in detail at the board’s finance committee meeting at 7 a.m. May 15 in the north campus board room, 100 S. Brainard Ave.
Recommendations for approval are expected to be made for the board’s May 19 meeting.
