EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – New York State residents will vote Nov. 4 on the Smart Schools Bond Act, which if approved, will allot $477,000 to Eastchester schools for technology and pre-K expansion.

The Smart Schools Bond Act is a proposal by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to fund both of those areas throughout New York State. Each school district will receive a set amount based on the district’s percentage of formula school aid.

"Technology is driving children to communicate, explore and learn differently, and we must do everything we can to ensure that our schools are prepared to meet this new reality…folding technology into our schools is crucial in advancing the achievement of New York State’s students, and by actively engaging with education and technology experts, the Smart Schools Commission is helping to create 21st Century classrooms in our schools," said Cuomo.

Districts are required to submit a “Smart Schools Investment Plan” to the Smart Schools Review Board, which is comprised of the education commissioner, the state budget director and the chancellor of the State University of New York. The plan will explain how the district will use the Smart Schools Bond Act funds.
