The School District originally entered into Contract No. 488/F10 with Atelier Art Services, Inc. pursuant to Resolution No. A-19, approved by the School Reform Commission on October 21, 2009.  This Contract provides for storage of valuable artwork owned by the School District under conditions appropriate for care of these works.  The School District later amended the Contract, generally to pay for and extend the term, under various School Reform Commission resolutions. Atelier Art Services, Inc. will continue to provide safe and secure storage for over 200 works of art from District schools and administrative buildings in a state-of-the-art climate controlled Facility.  We have maintained a good relationship with Atelier and find their services more than sufficient for our storage.
