Summary Points
The Proposal:  $2 billion of funding provided to school districts to build 21st century learning environments so students graduate with the  skills needed to succeed.

The Types of Projects that Qualify:  Technology equipment including computing devices, servers, networks, wireless infrastructure, and broadband connectivity; physical construction or modernization of Pre-K facilities; replacement of trailers with permanent instructional space; high-tech security upgrades including surveillance, access controls, and emergency notification.

The Submission Process:  The Smart Schools Review Board plans to establish submission guidelines and more detailed requirements and submission dates to be released in January of 2015.  Districts will submit “Investment Plans” as part of a new Technology Plan submission process currently being piloted in selected districts.  RIC’s will provide assistance as needed, and all plans will be submitted to the RIC for initial review.

Spending and Aid:  Smart Schools Projects are not eligible for other forms of State Aid.  Currently, there is no deadline on purchasing, so unused funds may be rolled over to the next fiscal year.

Stakeholder Involvement: Investment Plans must be developed with input from all school district stakeholders including parents and community members.

Planning for your Submission: The CNYRIC is available to help districts develop a technology integration vision as it relates to the overall instructional plan for the district, and an accompanying expenditure plan.  Our ITD team is formulating a white paper that will identify exemplar integration practices and conceptualize the role of technology in classrooms over the next 3-5 years.  This and other planning resources will be made available to districts and accessible here on this page.
