The contract was discussed at a district work study board meeting Monday and was agreed to be approved upon at the regular board meeting Aug. 27.
The district sought an exclusive uniform apparel supplier for its varsity teams and entertained bids from Nike, Adidas and Under Armour. The agreement includes footwear and coaches’ apparel, but does not include equipment or protective uniform apparel.
