• The Smart Schools Bond Act was passed in the 2014-2015 New York State Enacted Budget and approved by the New York State 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 education technology and infrastructure to improve learning and opportunity for students throughout the State. The SSBA requires that a Review Board review and approve districts’ Smart Schools Investment Plans before any funds may be made available to the district.

    Randolph Central School District has been allocated $1,076,341 for use on school/community connectivity, classroom learning technology, pre-kindergarten programs, replacement of classroom trailers, and the installation of High Tech Security features.  The district has a Smart Schools committee comprised of administration, staff, students, parents and community members. The committee is responsible for reviewing the plan and providing feedback/input on the proposed projects.
