New York allocates $27 million for school technology and security enhancements

In a major investment towards the future of education, Governor Kathy Hochul recently approved 59 Smart Schools Investment Plans worth $27 million to modernize schools across New York with the latest technology and security measures. The funding is part of the Smart Schools Bond Act initiative which aims to improve educational and safety infrastructure throughout the state.

The Smart Schools Review Board, comprised of educational and budgetary officials, reviewed and approved plans submitted by 53 school districts and two special education schools. The approved projects will focus on a range of enhancements from security measures to interactive classroom technologies, with the goal of creating safer and more engaging learning spaces for students. Funding plans include resources for entry control, video systems, emergency notifications, technological tools that will enhance the educational experience.

This investment highlights New York’s commitment to using technology to enhance education and safety in schools. By providing resources for schools to adopt advanced technologies and security systems, the Smart Schools Bond Act is ensuring that students have access to tools that not only improve their learning but also prepare them for future career opportunities. This ongoing effort to modernize classrooms through this initiative is a significant step towards equipping students with the skills and environment needed for success in the 21st century.
