Board approves security for schools; names new superintendent

Update July 15, 2013: A special meeting of Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board was held July 15 to rescind a motion from May 2013 and approve another one, both related to the installation of safe entry systems at 28 elementary schools.

In May, Board members awarded a contract to Stanley Canada Corporation for the supply, installation, testing and commissioning of front entry door building access systems and enhanced video surveillance systems. Shortly after, Stanley Canada Corporation notified senior administration that they were not able to fulfill the scope of the tender within the price quoted. Following consultation with legal counsel, senior administration recommended that the motion be rescinded and that the project be awarded to Alarm Systems (T.A.S. Communications).

Trustees approved a motion to award the contract in the amount of $554,500 to Alarm Systems (T.A.S. Communications).


The board’s high schools and some of the elementary schools already have the safety features installed.
