  • New York voters to decide on $2 billion ‘Smart Schools’ bond on November 4 | Mohonasen Central School District, Rotterdam, NY
    powerful learning tools Some critics have urged caution about borrowing money to pay for electronic devices that can have a short life span in relation to the repayment period especially given the wear and tear that inevitably takes place in a school environment The Empire Center for New York Public Policy Inc also argued that although the cost of electronic devices and infrastructure upgrades may be paid for by the state it would force districts to incur additional costs over time such as technology support services This includes any new staff or outside vendors needed to support users run new systems and troubleshoot issues that arise Meryl Tisch chancellor of the Board of Regents also expressed concern about the relatively short life of some electronic devices according to an October 2014 article published by Capital New York I am a believer that what s potent in technology today six months from now is on the shelf an old hat Tisch said according to the publication So my hope is that districts have a long range vision for what the best uses of technology are and use them masterfully to deliver a quality curriculum Financing the 2 billion bond The amount each district is slated to receive is proportionate to its share of overall formula driven state aid in 2013 14 according to a New York State United Teachers fact sheet on the referendum For example if a district received 1 percent the total amount of state aid the state allocated to districts in 2013 2014 it would receive 1 percent of the 2 billion Smart Schools money or 20 million The governor s Smart Schools Q and A indicates that once the review board approves a district s plan it is eligible to begin receiving grant funds Although the total of all district allocations add up to 2 billion it s not clear how much the state will ultimately borrow The ballot measure asks if voters support borrowing up to that amount and it s not known if all districts would spend their entire allocation The state has not detailed the repayment terms or schedule for the bonds The state s financial plan for the enacted 2015 budget includes 126 million for debt service related to the bond in 2017 and 156 million for 2018 The Smart Schools Commission In April 2014 Gov Cuomo announced a three member Smart Schools Commission to advise the state on the best way to invest the 2 billion The members of the commission are former Google CEO Eric Schmidt Harlem Children s Zone President and CEO Geoffrey Canada and Auburn School District Superintendent Constance Evelyn The commission held symposiums from July through September in Albany Buffalo and New York City to gather feedback from panels of education and technology industry experts At the symposiums panelists emphasized the idea that technology should complement and support current best teaching practices that technology can improve student progress reporting for educators and parents and that there is an
