Smart Schools Bond Act Plan

Smart Schools Logo

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced 65 Smart Schools Investment Plans totaling $44 million have been approved as part of the $2 billion Smart Schools Bond Act – a sweeping initiative aimed at reimagining teaching and learning for the 21st century. The Act, first proposed by the Governor and overwhelmingly approved by voters in 2014, supports investments in education technology that will equip students with the skills they need to thrive and succeed in the global economy. Together, these investments will help close the "digital divide" and increase access to technology and high-speed broadband in hundreds of schools across New York. 

The New York Institute for Special Education and other 4201 Schools in the State are participating in this initiative.

Below are the NYISE’s files supporting our participation.
