School Superintendent Peter Roswell told the Holland School Board Tuesday night the district could lose $65,000 this year under Gov. Cuomo's proposal to cut state aid to school districts.

Almost 62 percent of the district's current $8,991,112 budget revenues come from state aid, he said.

High School Principal Ronald Roma told the board two companies have submitted bids to supply the district 30 new computers and a file server. IBM submitted a bid of $79,138, and PC Assistance Inc. submitted a $74,442

Roma said the Computer Advisory Committee recommended PC Assistance because the company, whose computers are IBM clones, would incorporate the 14 computers the district already owns into the new system.

Roma explained the new computers would be installed in a lab, while the old ones would be distributed throughout the school. All the computers would be tied into the file server, which would be set up in the former projection room.

The board approved the bid of Hanson International Trucks to supply two 59-passenger buses at $46,238 each and one 47-passenger bus at $44,640 for the 1991-92 school year. The purchase depends on voter approval in June.
