Smart Schools Investment Plan

Enhancing, Teaching, and Learning
NYS Smart School Investment Plan 

The Smart Schools Bond Act was passed in the 2014 - 2015 Enacted Budget and approved by New York voters in a statewide referendum held during the 2014 General Election on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. 

The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) authorized the issuance of $2 billion of general obligation bonds to finance improved educational technology and infrastructure to enhance learning and opportunities for students throughout New York State. 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.

The allocation for Longwood is $7,772,337, and the District is implementing the Smart Schools Investment Plan in multiple phases.  The first two phases include the following:  

Phase 1:  Install network infrastructure and wireless internet connectivity districtwide.  Phase 1 was submitted to the Smart Schools Review Board in June 2016 and was approved in July 2017. (COMPLETED)

Phase 2: Acquire learning technology equipment, including chromebooks, tablets, laptops, and desktops to support classroom technology. Phase 2 was submitted for review to the Smart Schools Review Board in the summer of 2017 and was approved in November 2017. (COMPLETED)
