The Smart Schools Bond Act was approved by voters in a statewide referendum held during the 2014 General Election, and authorized the issuance of $2 billion to finance improved educational technology and infrastructure. The purpose of the Smart Schools Bond Act is to improve learning and opportunity for public and non-public school students. Through this act our school was allocated a total of $615,278.00
The Facilities Committee and Smart School Committee met to discuss the needs of the district over the next 5 years and decided to allocate our Smart Schools funding to improve high tech security, school connectivity, classroom learning technology, and our pre-k learning space.
In February 2018, the Board of Education will vote to adopt the plan. Following adoption, the plan will be presented to the State for approval. This process can be lengthy. Most likely, we will begin the actual work proposed in the plan sometime during 2019.
Please see more details about the plan in the document below.
