District's Smart School Investment Plan seeks state approval
The Board of Education unanimously approved the district’s Smart Schools Investment Plan at its meeting May 24. The finalized plan now goes to the state’s Smart Schools Review Board for approval and funding.
Williamsville’s Smart Schools allocation is $3.47 million of the $2 billion bond act put forth by Governor Cuomo and approved by state voters in 2014. In accordance with the state guidelines, Williamsville has developed a detailed plan for how its Smart Schools funding allocation would be used to improve and expand school connectivity. The plan details grade-specific objectives and infrastructure projects such as increasing bandwidth, increasing access points, new technology wiring, and network switch replacement.
