Smart Schools Supplemental Investment Plan - 2024-2025 School Year

In November 2014, state voters approved funding of $794,133 for a Smart Schools initiative.  From August 2015 until May 2016, the District's Technology Committee met to review the current state of technology use at Gananda Central Schools.  In their review, they also established goals and future needs of technology throughout the district.  Once their review was complete, they presented a preliminary plan for the Smart Schools Bond Act in order to obtain funding from New York State for technology upgrades.  Districts are allowed to submit for approved funds multiple times.
In 2017-2018, the District used $308,159 of the approved funding.  In 2019-202, the District used an additional $117,697, leaving a balance of $368,277 for future use.
In 2024, the District identified the following technology needs which totals $368,250.  To see a complete list of proposed purchases in the 2024-2025 school year, visit the Smart Schools Supplementary Investment page of our website:
