CNYRIC Assists Districts with NYSED Technology Plans
Following the approval of the SMART Schools Bond Act in 2014, New York state school districts may have access to $2 billion of funding to build 21st century learning environments.  Before a district can apply for SMART Schools funding, it must submit a certified Instructional Technology Plan survey to the NYS Education Department. The deadline to submit surveys is Oct. 16, 2015.
 
CNYRIC hosts informational meetings
In an effort to help districts prepare for the Instructional Technology Plan survey, the CNYRIC recently hosted two orientation sessions. Representatives from all four BOCES regions and over 40 school districts were in attendance. The survey, which is required under Part 100.12 of the Commissioner's Regulations, is designed to allow districts the opportunity to compile all data related to their technology planning and needs in one location.  It’s critical that districts correctly complete their surveys to be eligible for SMART Schools aid – the funding that will support instructional computer hardware and technology equipment expenses pursuant to Education Law, section 753.
 
CNYRIC to certify plans, Model Schools to offer assistance
Model Schools Facilitators from the four BOCES are available to meet with individual districts to examine instructional strategies and professional development, as well as to assist with plan preparations. Following the completion of the survey, the CNYRIC’s certified plan reviewers will work with districts to certify that all components have been completed as required. Districts should not submit their Instructional Technology Plan survey to the SED until they have received written confirmation of certification from a CNYRIC certified plan reviewer.
