Board to hold public hearing Dec. 18 on Smart Schools Investment Plan

Nov. 15, 2017 -- On Dec. 18, the Marcellus Board of Education will hold a public hearing on the district’s proposed Smart Schools Investment Plan, which outlines how Marcellus intends to use some of its $1.1 million allocation from the Smart Schools Bond Act for the 2017-18 school year.

The plan, available online here, includes the purchase of instructional technology equipment to be installed as part of the ongoing reconstruction project at the senior high school. Equipment includes desktop computers, monitors and interactive displays for classroom spaces, digital signage for common areas and presentation equipment for the large-group instruction room.

In November 2014, New York voters approved a $2 billion bond referendum to provide each school district with funding for new educational technology and infrastructure improvements. The bond funding can be used for the purchase of classroom technology, such as interactive displays and tablets; technology infrastructure, such as high-speed broadband, wireless capabilities or servers; to construct, enhance or modernize educational facilities, either related to the state’s full-day prekindergarten initiative or to replace transportable classroom units; and to install high-tech security features in schools or on campuses.

A committee of parents, staff, students and information technology staff was formed in February 2016 and will continue to meet to explore how to best use the remaining Smart Schools Bond Act funds.  This is the committee’s second endeavor; the first was the purchase of Chromebooks for the school district’s our one-to-one initiative.

The public hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m., Dec. 18, in the Marcellus High School Learning Commons.
