Smart Schools Bond Act Phase II

District Smart Schools Bond Act Enters Phase II
Posted on 12/05/2019
The Binghamton City School District’s Smart Schools Bond Act Investment Plan is now entering phase two. The purpose of the Smart Schools Bonda Act is to improve learning and opportunity for public and nonpublic school students by funding capital projects to:

1. Install high-speed broadband or wireless internet connectivity for schools and communities;

2. Aquire learning technology equipment or facilities, including but not limited to interactive whiteboards, computer servers, and desktop, laptop, and tablet computers;

3. Construct, enhance, and modernize educational facilities to accommodate prekindergarten programs and to provide instructional space to replace classroom trailers; and/or

4. Install high-tech security features in school buildings and on school campuses, including but not limited to video surveillance, emergency notification systems, and physical access controls.

The district was allocated $5,247,780 through the Smart Schools Bond Act and after further analysis of the district’s instructional and security needs, our Phase II plan was developed from discussion and feedback from several key stakeholders.

Phase II of the plan uses an estimated $1,178,000 in funds and will be used for the following:

To enhance and modernize pre-kindergarten classrooms at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School.

For the construction of secure vestibules at East Middle School, West Middle School, and Horace Mann Elementary School.

For security camera upgrades at Binghamton High School.

Any questions regarding Phase II of the plan should be directed to Karry Mullins, Assistant to the Superintendent or Erin Thompson-Miller, Director of Instructional Technology and Innovation.
