Camden County Board of Education having a surplus sale tomorrow. You cannot purchase unless you are employed by the school system.

I think it is illegal. That would be like buying an SUV, saying it is no longer needed and allowing only your brother to bid on it. Run this one up the flag pole.

I think its time we shut the BOE down, apparently education isn't producing nothing but more graft and crooked politics.

It's just illegal if what the first poster said was factual and complete. I have no doubt but, this is TOPIX Kingsland.

They undoubtedly cancelled the sale due to overwhelming amounts of pressure. I got this from two teachers who were going to purchase computers for their kids going off to college. I asked if I could purchase one for 75.00 because that is what they had to pay. I was told you had to be a employee of the BOE. They were suppose to be selling all sorts of stuff. I wonder what will happen to the surplus items now.

I'm sure my city can use them. I believe they can excess them to other agencies.

I do believe that anything bought with taxpayer dollars has to be offered up to the public...around this area there are so many things that are done unprofessionally...with illegal undertones...makes you scratch your head...and wonder how these highly educated people know how to get to their destinations. I am not speaking of all the educators...just the folks that try to scam the public.

You are right they did lie!!!

But I do have a letter from the school that says that these computers are for sale, and only to the employees of the schools. If there are any left they will be sold to the public.

My question is this, Is this a thank you from the board for their employees voting yes on ESPLOST?

I will post the letter later on today on my blog.

Here is the letter:
311 South East Street Kingsland, GA 31548
Dr. William C. Hardin, Superintendent
MEMORANDUM
7 April 2009
To: Will Hardin, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools
From: Jeff Kelley, Director of Information Systems
Subject: RESALE OF SURPLUS COMPUTER EQUIPMENT
At the November 2008 meeting, the Board of Education approved the project to collect, surplus and
sell computers replaced as part of the Basic Classroom Initiative. AccuCycle, the Atlanta-based
company approved to administer the project and all transactions, is ready to process the equipment we
have collected. They will clean the equipment, erase the hard drives, reload the operating system, test
the systems and handle all sales.
Although these systems are far beyond their reasonable life cycle for use in Camden County Schools’
classrooms, some of the best can be refurbished and have value as a stand-alone computer in a home or
community-oriented environment.
We have approximately 500 units eligible for resale at an estimated cost of $120.00 for a complete
system. However, we have not replaced many of our classroom monitors, so many sales will consist of
only the central processing unit (CPU), or about $80.00 to $90.00. Final counts will be available after
AccuCycle completes the refurbishment process. Camden County Schools will receive 55% of the total
sales receipts.
A room in the rock building of the Board of Education complex has been set aside for AccuCycle to
store, configure and sell the computers.
AccuCycle will announce the dates and time of the sale as soon as possible. They intend to make the
refurbished units available only to employees of Camden County Schools during the first phase of the
project.
Board Members:
Herbert Rowland, Chairperson · Daniel Simpson, Vice-Chairperson
Doug Benton · Jimmy Coffel · Randy Lee
