Smart Schools Investment Plan

The Smart Schools Bond Act was passed in the 2014­15 Enacted Budget and approved by the voters in a statewide referendum held during the 2014 General Election on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. The Smart Schools Bond Act (SSBA) authorized the issuance of $2 billion of general obligation bonds to finance improved educational technology and infrastructure to improve learning and opportunity for students throughout the State.

Pembroke Central School District’s Smart Schools Allocation is: $1,102,055.

Deciding on how computers, devices, communications, and other forms of technology should be integrated into the educational and operational landscape of the District must be an ongoing process. Each year the plan must be reviewed in the context of emerging technologies and developing educational, safety, and security driven goals.

Our major priorities will be the safety and security of our students and staff, facilitating the use of instructional technology with a focus on the support of curriculum and instruction, and the training of our staff in the effective use of instructional hardware, software and online services. We as educators must equip ourselves with the tools and knowledge, in order to help our students become prepared for college, career, and to become a leader in the 21st century.

Our Smart Schools Investment Plan has been submitted for review by NYSED staff to receive final approval by the Smart Schools Review Board. Upon such approval, our district will then be able to submit requests for reimbursement for approved eligible costs up to our total allocation.
