  • What is Smart Schools?

    By

    In his 2014 State of the State Address, Governor Cuomo called for New York State to invest $2 billion in its schools through a Smart Schools Bond Act – an initiative that would finance educational technology and infrastructure, providing students access to the latest technology and connectivity needed to succeed and compete in the global economy. New Yorker’s agreed and voted in the Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) in November 2014.

    The Smart Schools Commission released a final report in Fall 2014 outlining how school districts could invest the money allocated to each district.

    The SSBA requires that a Review Board review and approve districts’ Smart Schools Investment Plans before any funds may be made available for the program.
